1968 Triumph Tippa S Serial # 4851479 1968 Triumph Tippa S typewriter, Serial # 4851479 Steven Kuterescz's 1968 Triumph Tippa S typewriter. 2018-11-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1968 Triumph Tippa S Serial # 4851479 Despite being heavier and larger than my 1961 Adler Tippa, the ‘68 Tippa-S feels less substantial, has more rattle, and lacks the sharp rat-a-tat-tat of its predecessor. I'm starting to wonder why I bought it. sold

Curiosity I suppose. I've seen plenty of Adler Tippa S typewriters, but not so many Triumph ones. Apparently later Tippa S typewriters were basket shift. This one has a carriage shift.

A very average portable typewriter.
