1968 Adler Tippa S Serial # 4941289 1968 Adler Tippa S typewriter, Serial # 4941289 Michael Hoehne's 1968 Adler Tippa S typewriter. 2016-05-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1968 Adler Tippa S Serial # 4941289 Found this in a local thrift store where it had been sitting for a few months in its closed case. It needed a few fixes, relatively minor. The typeface is different from--nicer--than the face on my other Tippa S at http://typewriterdatabase.com/1968-adler-tippa-s.1663.typewriter so check it out. The type slug marks are mostly “88 AR”.

Manufacturing organization's name is Grundig.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
