1977 Adler J5

Serial #15936183

Typebar #1, with the number 6183 etched into it.

The J5 is sleek looking and functional, albeit not as smooth as higher quality typers. I like the chrome appointments. This one has the four digit number 6183 etched onto type bar #1.

The serial number is creating a conundrum for me. All of the J5's listed on TWDB are seven digits - this one clearly has an eight digit serial number. I'm comfy for the moment calling it an early 70's machine.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.

NOTE: The text regarding the serial number is incorrect, a newbie error on my part. Correct SN is 15936183 ~TH~

What the heck does this thing do?
