Wow ... a Privat with US keyboard. I never heard of the "Learnette" name before. Where is it, on the paper table?
... and what's the serial number? That's the second Learnette I hear from. The one sold last summer was # 204073. Could it be the same?
Yes, on the paper plate, Richard, I'll add a photo of it.Yes, Georg, same one, the serial number is in the post, right under the first image.
Oh yes, now I see that I saved a photo of this machine a few months ago. Promptly forgot about it!I have also seen one labeled Gloria.
Man, Voss is the best looking typewriter brand I've seen. They are visually striking!!! Not my everyday typewriter but I like to take it out once in a while so I can feel fancy and sophisticated (two adjectives that I think of with my Voss).
How interesting. Not that I missed seeing this serial number - the usual distraction. But that it's the same machine. So that means only one Learnette known. Good there is a Gloria around.
BTW, Gloria was one of the intended export (to Britain) names of the little Erika I know best as the Bijou three-bank.
Yes, I love that typewriter. I wrote my first novels on that VOSS, and I bought it on a fleamarket in 1985 when I was 15 years old.One of the novels was published five years ago in a german publishing house.Meanwhile my VOSS is not in good condition. Now I`m using a Adler Tippa. Nice, too.Best regards Florian Voss (yes, that´s right)...
