The Typewriter Database 195X Patria (Spain) Patria Serial # XXXXXXXX From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 195X Patria (Spain) Patria Serial # XXXXXXXX I wanted one of these, and I took the road to the Dark Side by buying the cheapest one I could find. Yeah, right, the price was awesome, but the typewriter is pretty badly beaten.

This is the Spanish version of the Swiss Patria, manufactured in the industrial town of Eibar (Basque Country). It had a moderate success, and it had two successors: the Amaya and the Pulsatta Deluxe when the company changed its name to Sedic. None of them reached this quality level, which is more than demonstrated by the fact that this oldie still works with no maintenance at all after being neglected (with extreme dedication) for about 40 years.

And then shame on me. Shame on me for not being able to find the serial number. Where is it hiding?!

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.
