1951 Halberg Junior Serial # 01602 1951 Halberg Junior typewriter, Serial # 01602 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1951 Halberg Junior typewriter. 2022-01-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1951 Halberg Junior Serial # 01602 Cosmetically well preserved specimen with quite some repairs under the hood. Unfortunately these repairs were not sufficient, the typewriter was barely functioning. It took almost 20 hours to get this machine back into working condition.

A stamp with a postmark from 1972 was found inside the machine. This may may suggest the typewriter was still in use two decades after it left the factory.

The inside of the case has a soft, fabric-like coating to protect the machine from scratches.
