1960 Rooy portable Serial # 73738 1960 Rooy portable typewriter, Serial # 73738 Alfred Kaltenecker's 1960 Rooy portable typewriter. 2020-06-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alfred Kaltenecker: 1960 Rooy portable Serial # 73738 One of the very rare Rooy portables with a German keyboard (including ß)! I didn't see any before. It is in stunning conditions without scratches or rust and works rather well although it needs some cleaning and careful oiling as obviously it wasn't used for several decades. And I bought it from a gentleman just living 2 villages away from here!

No bell and a 11 mm (7/16 inch) ribbon (hard to find) as all Rooy portables.

Collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
