The Typewriter Database 195X Hispano-Olivetti Lexicon 80 Serial # 1087546 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 195X Hispano-Olivetti Lexicon 80 Serial # 1087546 This the only active typewriter at the town hall of my village. From time to time it serves its purpose, but it´s mainly occupying a lot of room with its gargantuan carriage.

It´s a later Lexicon model, with decimal tabulator and these grey-blue-ish keytops, way more comfortable than the Black Hole keytops of earlier Lexicons. In addition, it has weird back feet. I don´t know whether it´s a normal feature of later Lexicons or those are mounted only on wide carriage models (this one has almost 170 columns). This one has to belong to the last generation of Hispano branded standards made in Barcelona.

It´s in pretty decent condition, although it has some allignment issues. The worst thing is the "G", which types totally out of place. Anyway, it´s fit enough to deliver at its not-too-demanding post.

As a curio, it sits on an Olivetti table. In fact, these are quite scarce, the most frequent typewriter table around here being the Involca Supernova. This Olivetti table is noticeably larger

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.
