1937 Triumph Standard 12 Serial # 210694 1937 Triumph Standard 12 typewriter, Serial # 210694 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1937 Triumph Standard 12 typewriter. 2021-07-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1937 Triumph Standard 12 Serial # 210694 As is shown under the space bar at the typewriter's front, this machine was owned by the KRIEGMARINE, ruled by the Great Admiral Karl D├Ânitz until the 2WW end.
So it is a little piece of an infamous period that humanity should never forget nor forgive (luckily the typewriter itself doesn't show any other symbol of its III Reich history).
Complete and operative, I've found it in Buenos Aires, owned by an antiquarian, who told me he bought it from "a very old german guy several years ago".
