1935 Kappel Portable Serial # 114148 1935 Kappel Portable typewriter, Serial # 114148 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1935 Kappel Portable typewriter. 2022-12-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1935 Kappel Portable Serial # 114148 A super hot sans-serif typeface. Interesting to find on a machine as old as this. Not 100% certain about the model name. It's clearly a rebranded Olympia Progress. It doesn't match the design of the VA. Picked up from a lady who bought it 20 years ago at a used shop. She'd always liked it and therefore never got herself to sell it before now, but has no knowlege about the machine's past beyond the store she found it in.

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.
