1964 Adler Tippa Serial # 4415569 1964 Adler Tippa typewriter, Serial # 4415569 Rachel Spence's 1964 Adler Tippa typewriter. 2022-05-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rachel Spence: 1964 Adler Tippa Serial # 4415569 Adler Tippa with Pica typeface. This is my first typewriter with an all-plastic shell. The mechanics of this Tippa are fantastic and very reliable, but there's a fragility to the shell that I'm not accustomed to. It's in great shape, and other than a standard cleaning, I only needed to replace the hardened grommets, super glue a hard-to-see crack in the shell, and flush out a gummy bell clapper.

I'm a Canadian book editor and typewriter collector with over forty typewriters, ranging from a Hammond 1 Universal remodel (1890s) to a 1969 Olympia SM8. I may be a newer collector, but I caught the typewriter bug a long time ago.
