The Typewriter Database 1976 Adler J5 Serial # 15811058 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1976 Adler J5 Serial # 15811058 The white plastic shell on this late J5 feels more fragile than earlier versions, but the typewriter is still fundamentally a good one, with a well-working tabulator and a whisper-smooth return.

This example has a script typeface.

The machine can be dated (probably) by the month and year stamp in the molded plastic case: I'm not sure how to interpret the month, but the year is 1976.
