1951 Gossen Tippa

Serial #38091

Sighted at Mesa Typewriter Exchange. Bill purchased this from the original owner, who had gotten it in 1952 when he worked at Gossen Co. Still retains the original typebasket protector, made of some thin, flexible material that *looks* like bakelite, but probably isn't.

Beautiful briefcase-style case, and German QWERTZ keyboard with quite a few special characters, including superscript 2/3, "micro", Omega, Pi, both dollar and pound sterling, and some odd symbol that looks like a stylized fly.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
