I believe that it was owned by my parents and bought in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire ,UK in the 1950s or 60s. It has not been opened much or used for a very long time, however, the keys move and the ribbon is still in place but dry. As far as I can work out everything moves as it should but is a bit ‘sticky’. It will obviously need some careful restoration to get it back to full working order, a great opportunity for a real typewriter enthusiast. There is no handbook with it. On doing a little research I have found that this might be a real ‘gem’, and has been described as one of the rarest typewriters known as they were only produced between 1952 and 1954. I have discovered 3 which have been seen (there may be more) and their serial numbers were in the 31000’s, 35000’s and 41000’s and they were designated as being 1953 and 1954. Apparently numbers 1-10000 were produced in 1952. This one has the number 06675 so is I believe a 1952 model and so might just be the oldest one in existence. It was produced by Halberg Machinefabriek NV, Cuyk, Holland. And they produced 3 models: the regular Halberg, the Halberg Traveler (or Traveller), and the Halberg Junior. This one is marked ‘Traveller’ in a diamond shape on the case and ‘Junior’ on the handle of the metal case. Please look at the photos to get an impression of the condition. The dimensions including case are approximately 7cm x 32cm x 30cm, and it weighs about 5kg.I am happy to answer any questions about this machine and to share my research.I have priced postage for selling to the UK but appreciate that this machine may go abroad, so I would need to negotiate with the purchaser the best way to send it and the cost. Country/Region of Manufacture: Netherlands
