1958 Triumph Perfekt Serial # 1253447 1958 Triumph Perfekt typewriter, Serial # 1253447 paul cormier's 1958 Triumph Perfekt typewriter. 2019-09-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of paul cormier: 1958 Triumph Perfekt Serial # 1253447 A junk shop bargain. It needs refinishing, as you can tell from the pictures. Several badges are missing, probably irreplaceable. And I'm not crazy about the color scheme of this one. In general, I prefer the styling and build quality of the Olympia typewriters of the era. Mechanically, the machine is just fine. The carriage return needs minor adjustment. It's rubbing the top of the ribbon cover a bit. I'll look into it. And the #1 key seems to have been replaced. Compare the Schreibkontrolle to the type sample.

I'm not much of a collector, just registering a couple old typewriters found in charity shops
