1931 Triumph Model 1 Serial # 88270 1931 Triumph Model 1 typewriter, Serial # 88270 Brian Brumfield's 1931 Triumph Model 1 typewriter. 2014-10-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brian Brumfield: 1931 Triumph Model 1 Serial # 88270 Beautiful machine with original case, ribbon spools, and the plastic window on the back is intact. QWERTZ keyboard.

I believe, based on Robert Messenger's extensive posts on the Triumph portable line, that this is indeed a 1931 Triumph Klein-Portable (aka Model 1). It was superseded by the Triumph Norm and then the Perfekt line.

I love machines, machining, creating things from nothing. Typewriters have struck a romantic chord in me, thanks to my oldest son, and I am working with him and the rest of our family to acquire, restore, repair many machines.
Our collection grows in fits and spurts - as the seasons change. We make a lot of acquisitions at estate sales, yard and garage sales, thrift stores, online, and through personal connections.
The machines that we don't want to keep in our own collection, we are selling through various outlets - Etsy, Square Market, and eventually on eBay - and unlike some sellers, we KNOW how to pack a machine for shipment! :-)
Brumfield & Sons Typewriters, at your service.
