The Typewriter Database 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2102996 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2102996 This was an eBay find for $74. Finally got it all set up and going, pretty slick. The keyboard is awesome, you can write in many different languages with this machine. Also, it happens to be a pretty early machine. I had never seen the spring loaded ribbon spool retainers before and I don't know how many 32s have them but I think they are way better than the little nuts. See my blog for more detail photos.
