19XX Antares North Star Serial # cannot locate 19XX Antares North Star typewriter, Serial # cannot locate James Gifford's 19XX Antares North Star typewriter. 2018-06-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 19XX Antares North Star Serial # cannot locate A friend picked this up for me at a local market. I'm assuming it's an Antares Parva, but I can't find a manufacturer name anywhere on the machine or the case. It's very similar to the Antares P39 I own, though for the life of me I can't locate the serial number. Any help greatly appreciated!

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
