The Typewriter Database 1950 Olympia Orbis Serial # 53652 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 1950 Olympia Orbis Serial # 53652 My second Olympia Orbis and my fourth Orbis at all. I really love these machines. Found at a flea market for 3€. The case is missing (I have only the bottom plate). The spring of the carriage return lever is a bit to low, so the lever does not move in it original position. This has no effect to for typing.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
