1953 Triumph Durabel Serial # 711954 1953 Triumph Durabel typewriter, Serial # 711954 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1953 Triumph Durabel typewriter. 2023-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1953 Triumph Durabel Serial # 711954 Triumphs low end typewriter. Spartan machine with only one platen knob, but still equipped with chromed carriage ends and thick felt sound insulation.

This typewriter has a noticeable bump in the carriage return action. It occurs when the carriage is exactly in the middle, in the carriage lock postion. The bump is caused by a dent in the carriage rails. It looks like the dent is machined into the rails. Could it be a centering aide?
