1977 Adler J5 Serial # 15936183 1977 Adler J5 typewriter, Serial # 15936183 tom hitt's 1977 Adler J5 typewriter. 2018-01-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1977 Adler J5 Serial # 15936183 The J5 is sleek looking and functional, albeit not as smooth as higher quality typers. I like the chrome appointments. This one has the four digit number 6183 etched onto type bar #1.

The serial number is creating a conundrum for me. All of the J5's listed on TWDB are seven digits - this one clearly has an eight digit serial number. I'm comfy for the moment calling it an early 70's machine.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Adler J5 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Adler Serial Number page and the Adler J5 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
