The German Gossen Tippa was originally the typewriter that was so good that Triumph-Adler bought the company to eliminate the competition ! From 1957 onwards, T-A developed the machine further, with the Tippa 'S' being the final version. A thoroughly modern, yet good quality portable typewriter, the luxury Tippa 'S' features an adjustable tabulator for column work or indented paragraphs - a a very unusual feature to find on a lightweight portable.
Featuring a 44-character keyboard with a pleasant 'touch', this machine has a fold-up paper rest. A nice feature is the margin release key, which also doubles as a keyboard anti-clash device to enable jammed typebars to be released from the keyboard without getting inky fingers ! With typical German thoroughness, every detail has been carefully thought out to make the typing experience as pleasant and easy as possible.
This particular machine appears to have had little use and was obviously cared for by its original owner. The manufacturers instruction book, supplied when the machine was new in 1974, is still present.
If you are looking for a lightweight portable typewriter with a real appetite for work, that will give many more decades of reliable service, this is the machine to have. Replacement ribbons are still readily available 'off the shelf' for this model.
