1957 Triumph Tippa B Necessaire Serial # 1342751 1957 Triumph Tippa B Necessaire typewriter, Serial # 1342751 David MacGregor Barlow's 1957 Triumph Tippa B Necessaire typewriter. 2023-02-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David MacGregor Barlow: 1957 Triumph Tippa B Necessaire Serial # 1342751 It was difficult to identity this 1957 machine at first since there are no markings indications model name. After comparison with other machines here it appears to be the Tippa B1 . A fantastic little ultra-portable. Built to travel, and built to take a few knocks. Was never a fan of the gull-wing ribbon covers on Hermes, but these are great, and do not interfere in any way. If you are looking for a throw-in-the-bag laptapper that is not fragile or too expensive but still a damn good and reliable typewriter - this is it.

I salvage, repair, restore, and (occasionally) sell typewriters. Not for profit. Not even for pleasure. Typewriters are a lifelong passion. An obsession.
