1957 Triumph Matura Serial # 1013616 1957 Triumph Matura typewriter, Serial # 1013616 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1957 Triumph Matura typewriter. 2022-01-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1957 Triumph Matura Serial # 1013616 Dutch author Jan Willem Holsbergen (1915-1995) wrote all his work on this Matura. The machine was serviced at regular base. Two type slugs were replaced (T, N) and the platen looked fairly new.

Despite not being used for decades (the Matura was full with cobwebs), the machine worked just fine. The typewriter had a used carbon ribbon with one side still readable.
