The Typewriter Database 2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus Serial # 231535 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus Serial # 231535 Made in China and types like it. Actually not too bad except the 6 and w like to go for a skip, and the carriage return is very stiff. But for $30, a curiosity worth entertaining. I can only assume that the numbers across the back are the date of manufacture and serial (as did another user). I've looked everywhere else and came up empty.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
