The Typewriter Database 1975 Montgomery Ward (Olivetti) Escort 55 Serial # 8141889 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick T: 1975 Montgomery Ward (Olivetti) Escort 55 Serial # 8141889 Pica type
US keyboard

The only Olivetti that I know of to have two red keys (margin release and tab) is the light grey Escort 55. This differs from the earlier Escort 55s by having later style keys and a different color scheme.

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.
