1977 Antares 20 Efficiency Serial # E-54998-118 1977 Antares 20 Efficiency typewriter, Serial # E-54998-118 Alessandro Ruoso's 1977 Antares 20 Efficiency typewriter. 2021-02-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alessandro Ruoso: 1977 Antares 20 Efficiency Serial # E-54998-118 Arrived today this Antares 20 Efficiency is one of the most complete typewriters I have found complete with manual, warranty and purchase receipt.
My model compared to the models seen on the database differs for the color change positioned at the top behind the ribbon reel and not frontally on the right like almost all the other typewriters I have taken.
In addition to the documents I mentioned earlier, I also found some very thin almost transparent typing paper and some sheets of carbonless paper.
Another curiosity I found is a label that they put near the reel which indicates I imagine the last tape change made which dates back to 12-12-1989.
I put the year 1977 as it has the receipt dated 05/31/1977, I think it can be a good verification point for the year of production.
