The Typewriter Database 1966 Olivetti Diaspron 82 Serial # 90144592 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1966 Olivetti Diaspron 82 Serial # 90144592 It's the love/hate machine. Fortunately, for me at least, I love the 82 - possibly even more than the Lexikon - because its type action is surprisingly quiet when compared to other standards of the day.

If the French-Canadian keyboard and dealer sticker(s) weren't enough to tell me that this machine was originally sold in Montreal, the brass plate riveted to the backside of this beauty would have made it obvious. The Diaspron was once the property of Montreal Martin, a daily newspaper in Montreal that produced its final byline in 1978.
