1951 Halberg Junior Serial # 02957 1951 Halberg Junior typewriter, Serial # 02957 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1951 Halberg Junior typewriter. 2021-05-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1951 Halberg Junior Serial # 02957 Light and flimsy, but interesting. Innovative carriage return lever works well. Has geared key levers, a 5th feet inside the machine and no scale on the paper bail. Good access to all parts for easy maintenance. Not bad for a first design.

This machine was in bad shape and the margin rack is missing. Restored to working condition but it does not type pleasant (anymore).

Feet replaced with rubber washers and Olympia Traveller feet.
