bad quality but very flat (and cheap, I bought it for 1€)
It was made by Antares and is identical to Lisa 30.
If Antares used the same serial numbers for the Lisa 30 as for the compact, it is from the end of the 1960s.
Compact numbers end with 354140 in 1964. So this machine is probably build after 1964.

WRONG typeface specimen. I confused them...

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
