A bargain at $40 (a price reduction due to a bent and detached paper bail).
Unfortunately, it's missing its lid, but does have two very nice metal (Pelikan) spools.
I'm willing to believe that this is the best ultra-flat portable typewriter you can buy.
I fixed the paper bail with a split pin. Back in action. SOLD

Perth, Western Australia. The best place in the world to be during a pandemic. But not an ideal location for a typewriter collector. My collecting interests shifted from mechanical typewriters to electronic. Theres something about the daisy wheel I like and there are more design variations than you might think. Still have few mechanical and electric typewriters. Running out of physical space ... ;)
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Gossen Tippa on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Gossen Serial Number page and the Gossen Tippa By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
