The Typewriter Database 1928 Orga Privat 5 Serial # 118448 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1928 Orga Privat 5 Serial # 118448 This beautiful typewriter sits at the town hall of my village, Cogeces del Monte. Sadly, it´s not in working condition, and I doubt it will ever type again because it´s quite damaged.

Nobody has been able to tell me about its origins. No one at the town hall knows when did it come there or until when it was used. There is a decal that leads to a Madrid retailer who sold it.

Anyway, I´m thinking about negotiating with the guys at the town hall and see if I can do something with this machine. I´d love to see it at home, typing again.

Besides, I have to ask the same question as Richar Polt did in another Orga entry: Shouldn´t the manufacturer be just Orga and the model Privat and the number?

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.
