1962 Adler Tippa Serial # 4297280 1962 Adler Tippa typewriter, Serial # 4297280 Dimitris Nikou's 1962 Adler Tippa typewriter. 2021-01-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dimitris Nikou: 1962 Adler Tippa Serial # 4297280 First typewriter for 2021!! :-))

Bought through Facebook Marketplace, this beautiful 1962 Adler Tippa with Greek typeface remained unused for more than 30 years, according to the seller.

It belonged to the seller's aunt, who used to work for a state bank in Greece - probably that is why the machine has a number glued on its side, but I am not sure about that awful sticker on the ribbon cover. Everything seems to work well, except from the back space button that does not respond every time. Also, the bell is not ringing when I reach the end of the line. I am sure I can fix those issues and also adjust the typebars to print as they should, after changing the ribbon as well. But first... a nice, deep cleaning. Generally, a very nice looking machine. It weights 4,5 Kg, with it's cover.

January 14, UPDATE - New pictures of the machine after cleaning.

Writer, blogger and art person from Athens, Greece. I currently own 11 typewriters, dated from 1913 (my oldest one, a Remington Standard 10) up to the mid 1980's. Most of my machines are functionable and I try to repair any with problems that keeps it from typing. For me, it is important for a typewriter not just to sit on a shelve for display, but also to be able to type when I want to.
