1972 Consul 221 1 Serial # 2 221 107926 1972 Consul 221 1 typewriter, Serial # 2 221 107926 Mark Petersen's 1972 Consul 221 1 typewriter. 2016-01-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1972 Consul 221 1 Serial # 2 221 107926 I bought this machine at the Big Flea in Chantilly, VA in 2016. It was $40 and a bit of a risk because the carriage would not move but I heavily applied Liquid Wrench and now it works very well and is pleasant to type with. It has a very slightly distinct and yet very pleasing typeface. I feel like this machine is from the 60s so I want to say 1962 but others on this database have theirs listed from the 1970s so I am going with that since I have no sources either way.
