1955 Voss ST 24 Serial # 107527 1955 Voss ST 24 typewriter, Serial # 107527 Bill Guthrie's 1955 Voss ST 24 typewriter. 2021-01-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bill Guthrie: 1955 Voss ST 24 Serial # 107527 This Voss ST24 was a victim of smoke damage due to wildfires in the area. I would estimate that i've managed to knock the intensity of the lingering smell of smoke down by around 90% in a week's time. I'm guessing that ridding this typewriter of the last 10% of the remaining smoke smell will prove to be the most difficult step. In the end it will be worth it as this is a great typewriter. I'll update the photo in this gallery and more to it a bit later on.

I'm likely more of a casual typewriteaphile than a typewriter humter/collector. That said, what started with a single Olympia SM9 quickly expanded to include two more Olympia typewriters: a 2nd SM9 and a mighty SG3. I've now gone on to add other brands, but thus far I remain most interested in the machines from the 1950's - 1970's. I use all of the typewriters that I own. Typing out a letter, or typing almost anything for that matter, brings me a great deal of satisfaction. The typewriters themselves appeal to my appreciation for well designed mechanical devices.
