198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe Serial # 15-5343742 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 15-5343742 Alex Sandler's 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe typewriter. 2016-09-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 198X UNIS TBM Traveller De Luxe Serial # 15-5343742 Bought it for $6 and probably from the original owner. Extensive paperwork (sadly, lacking the passport) and UNIS shipping box included. User's manual has a handwritten notification about bad ribbon advance, which worked only in one direction for years (now fixed by replacing damaged ratchet wheel paws).

A bit noisy (just like any other TBM De Luxe), but otherwise seems OK.

Sold Aug. 30, 2016.
