19XX Nippo Clipper Serial # 617414 19XX Nippo Clipper typewriter, Serial # 617414 Mark Petersen's 19XX Nippo Clipper typewriter. 2018-10-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 19XX Nippo Clipper Serial # 617414 As far as we know this machine is unique. Its closest relatives seem to be the three machines linked in Robert Messenger's blog, two of which are his, one of which belongs to Richard Polt. It is reasonable to assume it is a Nippo. It was made in Japan and the manual is typical of a Nippo. The machine is in great cosmetic condition, but performs horribly. I think it was less than $40 on eBay. Given away.
