1954 Torpedo 18 Serial # 714697 1954 Torpedo 18 typewriter, Serial # 714697 Mike Green's 1954 Torpedo 18 typewriter. 2022-05-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1954 Torpedo 18 Serial # 714697 It's a beauty. Great typer with segment shift. It's a qwertz keyboard so I either get used to it or just make a mental note that my Z mis-types are actually Ys and all typewriter documents are creative drafts anyway. The platen is as hard as they come, so maybe a new cover someday.

So many machines to explore. Someday I'll narrow it down to one machine and do some real work.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Torpedo 18 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Torpedo Serial Number page and the Torpedo 18 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
