1951 Triumph Norm Serial # 681373 1951 Triumph Norm typewriter, Serial # 681373 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1951 Triumph Norm typewriter. 2014-08-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1951 Triumph Norm Serial # 681373 It's a typewriter named Norm. Maybe no one will ever call out his name whenever he walks into a bar, but he's a really good friend none-the-less. A fellow collector told me to today that if blindfolded he wouldn't be able to tell this apart from an Optima Elite. Interesting assessment, but also a surprisingly accurate one.
