A collector's machine, that's what it is. Because it won't get much use apart from filling a slot on the shelves.
I acquired it because it had a really nice price tag and it had a keyboard layout I had never seen before. And it worked, which is always a nice bonus were it not for the little fact that I can't read Bulgarian. I can identify the letters (the layout is FUEISH) and I've heard Bulgarian is a really tough to learn language. The seller was Bulgarian, and so far my experiene with him is flawless. Around a dozen typewriters, and all of them a great bargain!
Another interesting detail I think I've noticed (I may be wrong) is that this typewriter has an older Bulgarian layout and it even has some characters no longer used. I can't easily verify this (maybe I could ask a Bulgarian neighbour), so any information on this is welcome.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
