1954 Halberg Traveler Serial # 39515 1954 Halberg Traveler typewriter, Serial # 39515 Mark Rosenzweig's 1954 Halberg Traveler typewriter. 2014-03-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Rosenzweig: 1954 Halberg Traveler Serial # 39515 This very flat typewriter was made in Holland. It is slightly earlier than my other Halberg, which also was made that year. This one has a shorter carriage return lever. It's paper bail returns to position by gravity, while the other Halberg uses springs. Also, the color of the keys differs and this one has a contrasting color space bar unlike the other Halberg. While both have tombstone-shaped keys, on this one the rounded top of the tombstone is on the top of the key while on the other it is on the bottom of the key.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
