I fell in love with the red of this machine. It stands out even across the room, in any light. Dated per the Olivetti serial numbers, as others seem to have done.
Note the photos are the vendor's, not my own. Windows did an update and now I can't figure out how to shrink my photos for web use. These'll do for now.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Invicta MP1 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Invicta Serial Number page and the Invicta MP1 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
