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).

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