195X Steelmaster (Patria) Portable Serial # BB 53870 195X Steelmaster (Patria) Portable typewriter, Serial # BB 53870 Jack B's 195X Steelmaster (Patria) Portable typewriter. 2018-06-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 195X Steelmaster (Patria) Portable Serial # BB 53870 I think we'll need a new company designation for this one. It's a US "Steelmaster" branded machine that is clearly a rebadged Patria/Swissa etc. I can't find any examples of these mentioned online, which leads me to believe they are quite rare.

Unfortunately, the seller was a complete idiot and this typewriter, the rarest I have ever owned, is totaled. It was packed in a laptop box with nothing more than two layers of bubble wrap. The cosmetic damage is bad enough, but I'm suspecting escapement damage as the machine will not type at all. It's a total loss.

No longer in my possession.
