1961 Supermetall KsT Serial # 617554 1961 Supermetall KsT typewriter, Serial # 617554 John Cooper's 1961 Supermetall KsT typewriter. 2021-04-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1961 Supermetall KsT Serial # 617554 The Typewriter Database requires a model name, but as far as I know, typewriters under the Supermetall brand were not given one. They are essentially identical to the Rheinmetall KsT.

This typewriter has a Dutch keyset with three currency symbols and diacritics. It's not quite as snappy as the 1959 Rheinmetall I also owned. The typeface is elite: 12 cpi.

Sold April 2021.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Supermetall KsT on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Supermetall Serial Number page and the Supermetall KsT By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
