1957 Adler Tippa Serial # 4157439 1957 Adler Tippa typewriter, Serial # 4157439 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1957 Adler Tippa typewriter. 2021-06-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1957 Adler Tippa Serial # 4157439 Sturdier than its plastic successor, but more complex on the inside. Large, solid carriage return lever gives the idea you are using a regular portable. Escapement trip needs very precise adjustment.

Interesting design features: tilting keys to keep them horizontal, ribbon color selector for black or stencil (but not red) and the case design.

The touch control knob on the left side of the body is missing. The ratchet release lever on the carriage was also missing, but I replaced it with one from a later model.
