Rare 1940’s Working Triumph Norm 6 Portable – New Ribbon, Case – German Made – Military Background


Working Triumph Norm 6 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1940’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well!Β  The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, 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 German made typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case.

The overall condition is good. All of the letter keys function and the Triumph Norm 6 machine works as expected. Though for the age it is, some of the keys might stick at first, the “E” doesn’t print fully and some of the glass keys are tilting to the side. The ribbon vibrator can get stuck sometimes. The case is in a shabby condition. Please refer to the photos to see other signs of use and age.

The gentleman who I acquired it from said that the typewriter was brought over to Britain after WW2 and was modified – you can see that the keyboard is in a QWERTY format, not the German QWERTZ layout. Having said that, the original German characters like the umlauts remain.

This intriguing word processor 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 German typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.

The vintage Triumph Norm 6Β typewriter is located in London, UK.
