1952 Halberg Traveller Serial # 596 1952 Halberg Traveller typewriter, Serial # 596 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1952 Halberg Traveller typewriter. 2013-12-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1952 Halberg Traveller Serial # 596 This is one of the very first Traveller typewriters. I saw it at a shop in Newport, Wales, and then the writing was on the wall. Carrying it on my backpack all day long and then carrying it back to Spain was quite a nuisance, but it was well worth the effort.

It is in pristine condition, except for the case which is quite deteriorated. It has been unused for quite a lot of years, but the ribbon still had something to say.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
