The Typewriter Database 197x Adler J4 Serial # 3846538 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brad Sarno: 197x Adler J4 Serial # 3846538 Another fine score. I love these Adler J4's and J5's. Such a wonderful typer. Such great precision and smooth operation. Among my very favorite machines for actual typing, so fast, so natural. The Germans made most of my favorite typewriters it seems.

The typeface is a bit smaller than 10-pitch. It appears to be a Congress font or similar.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
