1922 Noiseless Portable Serial # 1378 1922 Noiseless Portable typewriter, Serial # 1378 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1922 Noiseless Portable typewriter. 2024-01-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1922 Noiseless Portable Serial # 1378 A wonderful condition The Noiseless Portable that appeared in Norway. It lacks Norwegian letters, and is from a city that has been a shipping industry city for many, many years. Therefore, my guess is that the original owner of this machine was a sailor of some kind on one or Norway's many trading vessels that travelled to America, and he likely bought this machine while overseas for business use.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
