198X Royal (Triumph-Adler) Express Serial # 14289245 198X Royal (Triumph-Adler) Express typewriter, Serial # 14289245 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 198X Royal (Triumph-Adler) Express typewriter. 2016-11-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 198X Royal (Triumph-Adler) Express Serial # 14289245 I´m still trying to figure out where have I seen this typewriter before, and I´d swear it had a different name. Another problem is finding an accurate date. I think it comes from the 80´s, but I have no way to tell for sure. Oh, and it has one of those horrid stickers with a serial number on it.

Anyway, this is a good one. It´s surprisingly responsive, and it´s quite decent to use. It´s another example of a well made Japanese typewriter. Not expensive but definitely not bad at all. As a bonus, it´s in great condition even after being heavily used (typeslugs don´t lie).

Maybe not the most charming or emblematic typewriter ever, but a good deal for me.

--- LITTLE UPDATE ---

Finally I´ve remembered where did I see it! You can find this nice typewriter rebranded as Triumph Junior 12.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
