1962 Adler Record Serial # 2259536 1962 Adler Record typewriter, Serial # 2259536 Sebastian Kleinschmidt's 1962 Adler Record typewriter. 2021-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sebastian Kleinschmidt: 1962 Adler Record Serial # 2259536 I got this Adler Record with two other typewriters from my girlfriend's grandmother (12/31/2020). It was relatively dirty but already in great working condition. I cleaned it properly and now it is a really great standard (?) typewriter. It still has some paint issues and a crack in the ribbon cover but those are just aesthetics. The missing paper holder is a pity but I can make do without one. Everything else works great and it has a nice, easy-flowing typing action, soft and crisp. And I like it that it has a basket shift, which my only other well-working standard typewriter (my Ideal DZ33) doesn't have. It's just a tad loud.

I can totally recommend it to anyone looking for a workhorse.

I'm a new (started in May 2020) typewriter collector from Germany and interested in various kinds of brands and types from pre- and post-WW2, particularly focusing on Seidel & Naumann (Ideal & Erika), Triumph-Adler and Smith-Corona U(my favourite brand!), although I own some other brands and am looking at some others (Voss, Royal, Remington). I particularly like portables, my favourite pre-WW2 typewriter being the Erika 5 and my favourite post-WW2 typewriter being my Smith-Corona Silent-Super.
