1937 Triumph Standard 12 Serial # 216370 1937 Triumph Standard 12 typewriter, Serial # 216370 Oliver Scheit's 1937 Triumph Standard 12 typewriter. 2016-02-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Oliver Scheit: 1937 Triumph Standard 12 Serial # 216370 So far it has received only a cleaning on the outside. The typebars are not terribly sticky, but a little stiff none of the less.
Very precice, snappy feeling.
Basket shift

Have to clean it and get used to it a bit, then I'll see whether this is such a great typer to me as the Adler Standard (which seems to be 99% the same machine) is to Richard Polt.

On the side, it reads "RBD.Breslau" which stands for "Reichsbahndirektion Breslau". This typewriter has been involved in railroad-train administration in Poland as it seems.

The feet are so wasted, it's a pain to look at.
