1975 Triumph J5 Serial # 15556149 1975 Triumph J5 typewriter, Serial # 15556149 James Gifford's 1975 Triumph J5 typewriter. 2018-10-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1975 Triumph J5 Serial # 15556149 Wasn't sure if I should put this under Triumph or Adler, and please do reclassify. Neat typeface. Excellent working and cosmetic condition. Finding this machine makes me feel better about missing out on a working Smith Premier No. 2 for $50 because I didn't look down at a booth and got scooped. I'd still rather have the SP, but what can you do. FYI the serial is hidden tot he left of the carriage, recessed inside the machine in a little rectangle. Took some sleuthing but I eventually found it.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
