1953 Halberg Traveler Serial # 33122 1953 Halberg Traveler typewriter, Serial # 33122 James Gifford's 1953 Halberg Traveler typewriter. 2018-10-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1953 Halberg Traveler Serial # 33122 Bought this blind and am glad I did. A stunning little machine. I recognized the keyboard a similar to Royal Royalites and Parades and didn't know about the later affiliation with Royal. All metal (plastic tombstone keys). The serial number is hidden behind the slugs. You have to press a handful of keys so you can see it, on the left side. Love the crop-circle shape on the bottom of the case.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
