This machine was a gift from someone who knew that I collect typewriters. I didn't expected this: It's huge and heavy, a monstrous typewriter. But, I really like that it has Alpha and Gamma on its keyboard (I think they used the ß as Beta)
When you open the cover of spools it looks a bit like the spaceship in "You only live twice" that eats the other spaceships.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
