1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2138948 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 typewriter, Serial # 2138948 Nico Geretto's 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 typewriter. 2024-02-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nico Geretto: 1950 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 2138948 This 1st series Olivetti Lexikon 80 is one of my most favourite machines. Beside of the glass keytop, it has the wonderful "Simplicitas" typeface (N┬░0 on the hammers). It was made by a fellow Typewriter Hunter that took the Simplicitas hammers from a derelict and put them on this machine, restoring it as new. Works perfectly.
