1959 Torpedo 18b Serial # 1073284 1959 Torpedo 18b typewriter, Serial # 1073284 Septimus Clark's 1959 Torpedo 18b typewriter. 2021-06-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Septimus Clark: 1959 Torpedo 18b Serial # 1073284 The most I've ever paid for a machine - this one. And it was still a bargain, even though the case was a total mess and needed new zippers (I don't recommend a DIY zipper replacement if your patience is not up to snuff...). It's as photogenic as can be and everything they say about its typing quality is true. And I lucked out on the typeface too!
