1926 Regina 7 Serial # 26918 1926 Regina 7 typewriter, Serial # 26918 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1926 Regina 7 typewriter. 2017-12-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1926 Regina 7 Serial # 26918 I don´t know much about this brand, so there´s little to say apart from what I can see in this machine.

This lovely machine arrived home exactly the day of St. Regina, so it has to mean something, right? It´s a potentially stunning typewriter which seems to say "hey, look at me. Not everyone can have me on their desk". Apart from the looks, I´d say there´s nothing too fancy or innovative inside. Sadly, the machinery is quite rusty, so for now no typeface.

It could look great if is wasn´t for that weird scales on the paint. Maybe the gloss varnish over it has degraded or something, but I don´t feel confindent about attacking it with anything stronger than a cloth.

And of course I´d like to know more about this brand. These machines look absolutely great!

These strange scales are a nuisance... How could I get rid of them?

Aport from the s/n, here´s a good look at the general state of rustyness of the machine.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
