1932 Urania Piccola Serial # 112926 1932 Urania Piccola typewriter, Serial # 112926 Mark Schrad's 1932 Urania Piccola typewriter. 2022-11-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1932 Urania Piccola Serial # 112926 A nice Urania Piccola, which I picked up from Tony Casillo in Garden City, NY, in October of 2022. It needed quite a bit of help to get back to functional, including a new draw band and a busted mainspring that needed repair. Anyway, many frustrations later, it is back up and running again, though the "h" and even the "n" key sometimes hit beat the ribbon vibrator to the punch, and hit the paper before hitting the ribbon.
