Adler standard, Pica typeface with dead key accents. Comes with fitted paper storage stand instead of rubber feet. It came to me free, given by someone who didn't have the room for it. I also didn't have room for it, despite it being a beautiful and excellent typewriter, and so gave it to someone else.
Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Adler Special on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Adler Serial Number page and the Adler Special By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
