The Typewriter Database 1967 Adler Universal 20 Serial # 8322784 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1967 Adler Universal 20 Serial # 8322784 The eBay seller listed it as an "Alder" and also never mentioned it was script. I went through all of the photos and saw one washed out by the sun that showed me just enough of a letter to guess it might be script. With one bid I won this machine for $10, and $30 shipping. One of my greatest scores. Jack Torrance and Stanley Kubrick would surely approve. I love this machine. It's a tank and types like one, but the printed letters it makes are simply stunning. There are a lot of very cool extra characters too.
