1957 Adler Special Serial # 2137209 1957 Adler Special typewriter, Serial # 2137209 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1957 Adler Special typewriter. 2022-01-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1957 Adler Special Serial # 2137209 This machine belonged to a man who got it from his father, who received it as a retirement gift when he retired from his job. It was the machine he had used for his work for many years and took good care of it in the time to come. It has a very nice Imperial Elite typeface which is in my opinion among the prettiest typefaces Adler machines came with.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
