This is a late 70's or early 80's typewriter made in West Germany by Adler for the Swiss based Scheidegger typewriting schools which were started in 1947 by Willy Scheidegger and spread throughout Europe . He developed a method of teaching touch typing by using colour coded plastic caps that fitted over the keys . You would sign up for a course and included in your fee was a typewriter such as this one. The Scheidegger schools lasted up until the late 1980's and their typewriters were supplied by Adler with this model being basically a Gabriele 25 model .It's in a good working order, types well and is in a nice condition with only a few very minor marks to the plastic body .It's in a light creme colour with standard charcoal grey keys and shift keys, space bar and carriage knobs.
We have given it a professional clean ,service , adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on .
GR 1 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . A ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .
The typewriter measures 30 cms across by 34 cms deep by 12 cms high and comes with a standard Adler carry case which is in a good condition with just some marks and scratches in places . The handle and clasp to close work well . We also include a copy of an original Adler instruction manual .
This is a good quality German Adler made typewriter in full working order and in a nice condition .
