My first typewriter, probably a 2008 or 2009 model. I was the first owner. When I asked for a typewriter for my birthday this is what I got. It is not at all a great machine. The touch is awful, the alignment is awful, it is made of flimsy plastic, it is ugly. I have an identical "Olivetti" in white.
