1959 Torpedo 18a Serial # 1078677 1959 Torpedo 18a typewriter, Serial # 1078677 Nick T's 1959 Torpedo 18a typewriter. 2016-09-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick T: 1959 Torpedo 18a Serial # 1078677 Imperial Elite type
Dutch international keyboard

Found this in great shape in a little junk shop in Michigan. It has what I am guessing to be a Dutch international keyboard, as it has both $ and Ā£ along with Dutch characters and 4 accent characters. Imperial Elite type (commonly called Congress Elite).

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
