1959 Olivetti Lettera 22

Serial #713892

This was a $10 craigslist find that has a busted return lever - a harder problem to fix than it would seem. Until that gets squared away, I've used it as a parts machine for another L22 restoration for my friend Abi. Not much other than the lever and the crud and scratches on the shell is wrong with it, so eventually this will get restored once I find another parts machine.

Gifted to Key Snap.
