1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2105246 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 typewriter, Serial # 2105246 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 typewriter. 2021-05-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2105246 Compared to standards like the SG3 and Matura this typewriter stands out as small and elegant.

The Lexikon is easy to dismantle and clean. The margins can be set manual, or by pressing a button and move the carriage to the desired position. The tabulator moves the carriage gentle from tab to tab. The touch is solid and on the heavy side. Typing sound is pleasant and not too loud.

Odd: the margin scale is hard to read.

The Lexikon could best be described as a semi-standard with good looks.
