Found in poor cosmetic condition but without operational problems. Due to a heavy blow the faceplate was semi-destroyed and it had to be rebuilt, I think I did a good job.

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.
