I enjoy collecting typewriters ... they are so interesting and they have gone through and seen so many life stories in all these years .... they are full of secrets .. if only they could talk !!
I am a keen collector and restorer as well, I enjoy bringing old and antique typewriters back to their original conditions (when it is possible).
I live in Italy, and only from 2015 I started collecting typewriters, I prefer those manufactured before the Second World War and made in metal, even if I have some in my collection that are more recent, anyway they all have something particularly interesting about them ... my collection is growing very quickly.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Optima Elite 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Optima Serial Number page and the Optima Elite 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
