  1. Tough one! Reminds me of some Remingtons of that period, but it's far more likely to be a German make.

  2. Nach intensivem Studium der infrage kommenden Modelle (ricardo-Suche) bin ich zum Schluss gekommen, dass es wohl eine solche Adler sein müsste. Bei der Remington scheint der Knick weiter oben.

    1. Yes I think so too: I checked and it must be a Triumph/Adler Gabriele variant.

  3. Agree with Richard -- the profile and keys look very much like my Remington Monarch. It's not quite right, though. There are some prongs? on top of the carriage that look unusual.

  4. Adler J5, or Gabrielle perhaps?

  5. I frankly can't even tell whether it's an office machine or a portable. The photo makes me want to reach behind Prof. Habermas and pick up his typewriter to get a better look.

    1. Your wish is almost fulfilled - Prof. Habermas is turning towards us! (see photo above)

  6. He's very kind to turn like that for us! It's not a Monarch. Richard should be able to tell from the ribbon cover. :-)

  7. I'm getting an Adler buzz but still am not sure. It seems big for a portable but compact for an office typewriter.

  9. Ok, I think we are getting results here: it should be a Triumph/Adler Gabriele variant. I can recommend these machines, they don't look particularly attractive, but write very well.

  10. You must be right, it looks much like This Adler Gabriele 25.
