SORRY, SOLD! 1962 Voss Privat Typewriter
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1962 Voss Privat Typewriter

    €350.00Price

    This is a 1962 Voss Privat typewriter in a lovely blue & cream combination. It is a lovely and very portable typewriter. Voss Privat typewriters are not very well known because very few of them were manufactured. However, Voss typewriters have always been known for their excellent design and manufacture. 

    This is what is commonly known now as a "super-portable" typewriter. It is compact and relatively light and comes with a carrying case. It has been fully reconditioned although it arrived to us in excellent condition. It was not subject to excess wear or use during its earlier lifetime. The cosmetic condition is nearly spotless and the internal mechanisms are bright and shiny and unworn. The platen is smooth and clean and receives the imprint well (see typing sample).

    The keyboard is QWERTY and the typeface is Pica 10 cpi. (see example in photos). The keyboard has keys for German and other European languages. This Voss typewriter comes, of course, with a new ribbon so that you can start typing immediately.

    About Acme (more about the typewriter below):
    Acme typewriters have been the choice of discerning collectors and writers more than 1,000 times since we began selling internationally in 2016. We safely ship your typewriter from our gallery in the Netherlands and delivery time to the US averages only 3 days—this is a quicker delivery time even than most domestic shipments within the US!  Acme typewriters are covered by a 1-year warranty and come with lifetime customer-care. 

    With an ACME Typewriter, you know you are getting a fully-working--as original--typewriter. The only thing that you have to do is sit down, put paper on the roller and start typing. Your typewriter comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored in 2023 by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future.

    Comes with its original carrying case which is in good condition. The handle and latch are solid and usable. The zipper is not fully operable on one side, however the hasp on the front works very well to close the case.
