The number 3 of the pack of typewriters I got as a Christmas present for 2015. Three weeks before Christmas, but that was the intention, and that´s what counts.

In theory it´s the nº 3, but taking into account the good shape it is in, I´d say it would climb up to nº 2. It´s complete, looks great and the action is more than satisfactory. In fact, it´s surprisingly good when you compare it with other little portables of that time. Feels solid and definitely fast. So far I´ve only tried it without ribbon, feeding a sheet of paper and doing some "typing".

--- UPDATE ---

Serial number and typeface added, after putting a new ribbon, oiling it and giving it a go. It´s surprisingly HARD to use, and reminds me a lot of the well-known Corona 3.

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.
