1955 Empire Aristocrat Serial # AZ231139 1955 Empire Aristocrat typewriter, Serial # AZ231139 Jonathan Crowe's 1955 Empire Aristocrat typewriter. 2023-01-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Crowe: 1955 Empire Aristocrat Serial # AZ231139 Found at a flea market in Renfrew, Ontario, costing all of $23 and in apparently non-functional condition. The carriage rail was detached on the left hand side, which we've fixed, so now the carriage, escapement and backspace work properly. Still needs more work and a lot of cleaning, after which I will update this listing.
