What We Think

The original Collegian, built during the '30s and '40s, was National's least expensive model; opting for a simpler "bullet-hole" plate and offered in only a yellow/cream finish. The new Collegian, while borrowing from the source material, might start with simpler looks, but is anything but humble! This one, in eye-popping Galaxy Blue, feels as finely honed as any current national while maintaing those pre-war aesthetics. Slide or Spanish, this National is ready for class!
