No more than 6,000 first series machines were produced between late 1937 and early 1938. The first series models differ from the later ones for the chrome panel sides and the different design of the rear, as visible in the images comparing two models of the same year of production but different series.

I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s to early 1900s. After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer now the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.
