The Typewriter Database 1961 Torpedo 18a Serial # 1224581 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick T: 1961 Torpedo 18a Serial # 1224581 Script elite type

This was my first script typewriter and it looks almost like my second Torpedo, though it has a standard keyboard. It came to me in an Olivetti Studio 44 case as a gift from a prominent collector.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
