Triumph Norm 6
This 1943 QWERTY machine is very smooth and fast to type on. Has a black silk ribbon installed and feet have been replaced with new grommets.
This particular Norm 6 started out life in a full German layout, however at some point it was adapted to the QWERTY layout instead. However it did not receive an update to the currency key, and it retains the stylized “M” for marks, as well as all of the other German keys.
At some point this one got a little bonk on the back and the paper support isn’t perfectly straight, however neither of these negatively affect the typing experience, which is absolutely superb on this machine.
Do pardon the poor photography here, these are due for a refresh with better lighting!
