The Typewriter Database 1954 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2246607 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1954 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2246607 Another masterwork of the Nizzoli-Beccio design team, Lexikon 80 epitomizes the Olivetti stylistic option of "creating a protective shell that echoes the configuration of the machine's internal components." It's a marvel how a full-sized standard could have a structural form so sleek and graceful. The typing action is one of the best I've ever encountered, perfectly snappy with an assured stable feel. Made in Ivrea, Italy.
