A painful sighting. REALLY painful indeed, for a variety of reasons.

First: As you can see it´s in terrible condition. It´s far beyond repair, nothing can bring this thing back into action. No rubber on the platen, there´s a bit of segment here but not there, it´s rusty... Impossible to repair.

Second: The price tag: 199 € for this corpse, and I can´t see it going down.

Third: It has Spanish keyboard.

Fourth: Early serial number.

Fifth: The seller goes by the name "Megapawn". That doesn´t bode well...

So I guess this is the end of the line for this poor little guy. I prefer not to see these things happening, because I may be a bit nuts, but I don´t like seeing broken typewriters

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.
