The Modell L1 was produced 1932 until 1937 (?), L2 from 1937 (?) to 1941. I'm not sure if it is an L1 or L2.
The plant was destroyed by the Nazis in 1941.

I will upload better and more pictures in two weeks.

It was new to me that they were exported to Germany.

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).
