1951 Voss 50 Serial # 21445 1951 Voss 50 typewriter, Serial # 21445 Mark Petersen's 1951 Voss 50 typewriter. 2020-09-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1951 Voss 50 Serial # 21445 Plastic fantastic. I acquired this at the fall 2018 meeting at Herman Price's house from Brian Cavin. It's a nice machine to type on. I think the language for the keyboard might be Portuguese and perhaps the strange symbol after the 9 is for Brazilian Cruzeiros... but I could not find an exact match.
