1952 Halda P Serial # 21585 1952 Halda P typewriter, Serial # 21585 Oliver Scheit's 1952 Halda P typewriter. 2016-09-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Oliver Scheit: 1952 Halda P Serial # 21585 When it arrived, it had an issue with the ribbon advance system. The seller had told me about it and I was optimistic that I could fix it.
Took me about 2 hours. A spring inside the mechanics had come loose and also one spool had a slightly bent "catch-finger" which pops out once the ribbon has come to the end.
So, after a few ours of minor repairs and some cleaning, this is now a fine typewriter.

Halda P and Facit TP-1 typewriters have the lightest touch of all typewriters that I tested so far. For me, this is important, since I experience pain in my finger-joints ever so often.

The font-code is 1-C CSA.
I didn't measure it yet, but I would think it's a 10cpi, maybe a little smaller, but by far no 12cpi.

I will fill the "schmasch"-website little by little with some additional information on my typewriters. (http://schmasch.de/wp/)



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Halda P on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Halda Serial Number page and the Halda P By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
