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.

Seriously, does anyone know anything about these and whether or not they are indicative of a particularly early machine?
