The Typewriter Database 198X Olivetti Lettera 10 Serial # 0944155 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 198X Olivetti Lettera 10 Serial # 0944155 My second Olivetti Lettera 10, and at least this one works as it´s supposed to do.

That´s the good thing, because the bad thing is pretty much everything else. Not a good typewriter, and crippled by that nonsensical cartridge. This one still has a working one, so I can use this typewriter for a while. In addition, a former worker of the Olivetti plant of Barcelona (thanks, Ángel) gave me a tiny box with 3 brand new cartridges. This typewriter is safe for now.

It´s here because it was only 2 €. I got 5 typewriters for 10 €, and this is one of them.

Another good detail is the typeface. Not bad!

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.
