The Typewriter Database 195X Hispano-Olivetti Lexicon 80 Serial # 559351 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 195X Hispano-Olivetti Lexicon 80 Serial # 559351 The Hispano Lexicon 80 is very similar to the Olivetti Lexikon 80.

Manufactured in Barcelona, it has the Spanish keyboard layout, and the model is named Lexicon instead of Lexikon.

This machine works pretty well even after years of hard work (and really light maintenance), and marks an interesting line of design. It is also very noisy. The carriage, the keys and, above all, the caps make a lot of noise.

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.
