The Typewriter Database 1952 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2493211 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dave Philips: 1952 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2493211 I've had this one for a while. I'm just now getting a chance to post it. I love the way it looks, I love the way it types, but I can not get used to the crazy keyboard. Why would you move the 'M' key? I have a feeling this one will get caught in the great typewriter culling that is starting up here.

I am a musician living in Los Angeles. I got into typewriters because I love the way typing feels. Here in L.A. it is hard to find typewriters that are reasonably priced, but I occasionally manage to stumble across them.
