The Typewriter Database 1951 Halda 6 Serial # 6-28391 6 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1951 Halda 6 Serial # 6-28391 6 An outstanding typewriter which can endure a lot of work, and also a moderately rare specimen. I managed to get it at an insultingly low price (26 euros) and in pretty good shape. A bit of oil and it´s ready to go, and I hope the ribbon will resist. Again, it´s SO hard finding good ribbons over here. The machine seems to have been imported to Madrid by the only authorized importer in Spain back then: José Leblanc.

Unlike other great typewriters, this one doesn´t feel "dull at all". The touch is surprisingly light, and somehow it´s so entretaining using it.

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.
