1965 Consul 232 Serial # 5 232 328735 1965 Consul 232 typewriter, Serial # 5 232 328735 Mark Schrad's 1965 Consul 232 typewriter. 2024-03-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1965 Consul 232 Serial # 5 232 328735 Purchased in the Fishtown neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA in February, 2024. Needs quite a bit of cleaning work, but it is complete, and has the original Czechoslovak floral cover to it!

EDIT: According to the carbons and other ephemera included in the case (as well as the testimony of the seller), this machine belonged to wedding photographer George J. Orsino, of the Orsino Color Studio ("Home of Beautiful Brides"), at 2603 South 7th Street in Philadelphia, PA. Always great to link a machine to its original owner!
