Basically, the Olivetti Ricalco is an Olivetti 40/3 modified to fit accountant needs. Two slightly different models known: Auctor 21 and Auctor 22 (this one is an Auctor 22 model).
Very heavy (around fifty pounds) and solid.
This one is a battered example, but Ricalcos don't come easy... so I grab one when the first one appeared in the www.
Made in Italy by Second World War time, so quality and raw materials are what you can expect...

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olivetti Ricalco on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olivetti Serial Number page and the Olivetti Ricalco By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
