1940’s Working Torpedo 17 – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Germany
Working Torpedo vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the 1940’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The keys are comfortable 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 sturdy German typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle.
The overall condition is good. All of the keys work as intended and the Torpedo functions well. Please note that not all letters print well – a type sample has been provided. Minor signs of use and age are present. The case does need to be closed in a specific way.
The retro typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
