Description:

I wish this typewriter were in better condition, because a Diamant is something you don´t find everyday.

It came along with another three typewriters, and these are my Christmas presents for 2015. In theory this Diamant is the nº 2 of the pack in terms of "collectability", but it´s terribly damaged. In fact, I don´t know if it´s fixable or not. The carriage is frozen with rust and who knows what else, and I´d say there are several bits missing.

I´m not a big fan of these small typewriters, but no doubt I appreciate it and I´d love to see it working. Time will tell.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
