1958 Royal Diana Serial # DTP 70860 1958 Royal Diana typewriter, Serial # DTP 70860 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1958 Royal Diana typewriter. 2015-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1958 Royal Diana Serial # DTP 70860 This Dutch made Diana is a really nice typewriter. In fact, everything has gone so smoothly with it that I don´t know what to say about it!

It´s precise, stable, quick, looks good... Everything is good about this heavy portable except for two things: the right margin selector is a bit rebellious and from time to time it springs and darts towards where you´re typing, and the case zipper is missing.

But I can live with that, of course. Reminds me a lot of a Torpedo 20, but gentler.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´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.
