1940 Continental 100 Serial # R340495 1940 Continental 100 typewriter, Serial # R340495 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1940 Continental 100 typewriter. 2022-09-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1940 Continental 100 Serial # R340495 Being not too picky has its pros and cons. One can be overrun with literally hundreds of typewriters, but at the same time thereĀ“s the chance of getting a fully functional, beautiful typewriter like this one. ItĀ“s a member of the rescue team that came after a badly damaged Iberia B. What

It works perfectly fine, as expected with this model. The Continental 100 is a worthy successor of the Klein Conti. A reliable, fast and stylish typewriter which sacrifices a bit in terms of size in order to get much better performance. This specimen works flawlessly, but the ribbon cover is missing. Not much of an issue because typing on this machine is a beautiful experience, and the last thing you'd think about is the ribbon cover.

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.
