198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe Serial # 15-5607182 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 15-5607182 Jugo Boy's 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe typewriter. 2023-05-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jugo Boy: 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe Serial # 15-5607182 One of the most common typewriters in Eastern Europe, manufactured in Yugoslavia under license from the well-known West German company ‘Olympia’. It has a German keyboard layout and good functionality. It stands out with decent quality, not significantly different from the original Olympia Traveller.

The typewriter was purchased in Russia for approximately $14 in very poor condition: the keys were not pressing at all, there was a lot of dirt, mold, and rust inside, and some keys had turned yellow. Thanks to diligent restoration with the replacement of many parts (including the housing elements and the aluminum keyboard backing), it was possible to restore the typewriter to a fresh appearance and full functionality. Now, very little reminds of its original condition.

Hello everyone
My name is Lev, now I live in Moscow. I spent my entire childhood with a Lubava typewriter (soviet sister of Erika-105) in my hands, and I still continue this hobby. Now I like to search typewriters and put them in order. I prefer to work with Yugoslavian UNIS, but sometimes I take on other models.
I would rather be called a 'hunter' than a 'collector'. But better I’d call myself a lover of restoration. I like to look for and repair different TWs, but I keep for myself only what I use.

I will start my work at TWDB with the publication of the 'Agidel' typewriter, one of the rarest ones ever made in the USSR. Recently, this rarity came into my hands.
