1927 Neya Portable Serial # 31435 1927 Neya Portable typewriter, Serial # 31435 Otto Koponen's 1927 Neya Portable typewriter. 2024-04-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Otto Koponen: 1927 Neya Portable Serial # 31435 Neya Portable (2), 1927.
Serial number lower than the known range (31501-33000) so probably very early in the second production run.
German layout.
Ra58 Standard Pica typeface.

Uses 14mm ribbon but this machine had spacers that go under the spools for use with 13mm ribbon spools.
Reproduction spools from MJF Nylon PA-12.
Shift mechanism is very clearly "inspired" by the Underwood 3bank.
Margin center stop sheared off.
No case.
