The British Imperial Good Companion was originally introduced in 1932, and continued in production with regular updates in appearance until 1966.  This 1961 Good Companion Six is the last iteration of the model, although the 'works' inside are still basically that of the 1930's machine.  Very sturdy and upright, I have always regarded these models as the 'Morris Minor' of portable typewriters.

This particular machine has been well looked after by a previous owner, who has kept the original handbook, makers' guide to touch typing and typeface cleaning brush.  It is in good condition with no appreciable wear, but does have a couple of small surface scratches as might befit a typewriter that has had a few decades use !

The Good Companbion Six has a 44-character keyboard and chrome-plated fold up paper rest to support longer sheets.  Unlike earlier Good Companion models which just had 1 and 2, this one has 1, 1.5 and 2 line spacing.  A lovely robust classic typewriter that still has many more years of faithful service ahead of it.  A perfect present for someone special, or simply treat yourself !
