The Typewriter Database 198x Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # P4727175 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Francisco Parada: 198x Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # P4727175 Bought from the grandson of a gentleman, who used it for accounting and other tracking forms, for 10€ in neat condition, with just some dust inside.

The ribbons still have readable sayings here and there, where there was no letter overlap.

Has a 26" carriage, non-removable. My closet is only 22" deep, so I need to find another spot to keep it.

Has 2 key-return springs missing, but that doesn't affect the machine in any way, maybe just gives a little slower writing when using X and S keys.

Has two tilde on the same key.

Would like advice on date/decade, as Database ends in 1978 with 43xxxxx starting serial numbers.
