The Typewriter Database 1988 Olivetti ET 2200 Serial # XXXXXXXX From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1988 Olivetti ET 2200 Serial # XXXXXXXX Almost brand new. The previous owner typed just a few pages with this beast packed into a wedge. I got it from the usual suspect, who assured me it was a great machine, best quality and almost fresh out of the box. And as a little extra he gave me 4 cartridges for free, so that I can use it for a little while.

As far as my knowledge goes, this is one of the most complete wedges Olivetti made. It´s crammed with a hundred sundry functions, the daisywheel includes some weird symbols (see typeface) and the keyboard feels just great. By the way, I love machanical keyboards and I deeply hate laptop keyboards. Regarding speed, this is undoubtedly the fastest typewriter I have, but wedges play in a different league.


Again, I can´t find a serial number. The date is clear, but the serial just isn´t there.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
