The Typewriter Database 1977 Triumph Contessa De Luxe Serial # 10385942 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Francisco Parada: 1977 Triumph Contessa De Luxe Serial # 10385942 Lovely orange Contessa Deluxe.

Same lid and body as my 1971 beige Contessa, with different mechanics.

Upper carriage is very similar, with minor mechanical differences, namely 5 manually set tab stops.

Compared to the 1971 model, which shared Tippa mechanics, this one seems to be a bit stiffer on the keys.

Features basket shift instead of segment shift on the older model.

UK (?) keyboard.

Loved the seller saying that is had the country’s flag stamped on the case (ribbon colour indicator). Some people don't know when to keep their mouth shut. :P
