1960s Adler Tippa 1 Portable Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Grey – Made in Western Germany
Working Adler Tippa 1 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1960s. Regardless of such old age, the Adler machine works very well! The bespoke keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This West German made typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is good. The keys work well and the Adler Tippa types as expected. Minor signs of use and age are present. Please note the case has some cracks at the back.
The Adler Tippa typewriter could be a starting point to younger generations, due to smooth and light typing keys. The typewriter is small in size and light in weight which is convenient if you are planning to travel with Adler Tippa.
The retro Adler Tippa typewriter is located in London, UK.
