1955 Gossen Tippa Serial # 133211 1955 Gossen Tippa typewriter, Serial # 133211 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1955 Gossen Tippa typewriter. 2021-10-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1955 Gossen Tippa Serial # 133211 Over engineered, a bit loud and not the most maintenance friendly. All these things are compensated for by how well the Gossen Tippa types. It is almost like using a 1950 Triumph Norm.

It can not be emphasized enough how much the case contributes to Gossens 'office in a briefcase' concept. The case lid let you store quite some paperwork and - most important - keep it safe. The bottom plate makes the Tippa an excellent lap typer, and when used on a desk, makes sure the typewriter stays where it is.

This luxurious, high performance, flat portable came at a price, being one of the most expensive typewriters in its class.
