1956 Adler Universal Serial # 1069345 1956 Adler Universal typewriter, Serial # 1069345 Mark Schrad's 1956 Adler Universal typewriter. 2023-02-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1956 Adler Universal Serial # 1069345 I got this technological marvel of an Adler Universal from a clean-out company in Philadelphia, PA in February of 2023. It needs some work as the carriage does not advance, and I need to bone up on repairs of this model. It seems as though the counterweight mechanism is frozen solid. So I have some learning to do.
