1959 Olivetti Lettera 22 Serial # 713892 1959 Olivetti Lettera 22 typewriter, Serial # 713892 Ted Munk's 1959 Olivetti Lettera 22 typewriter. 2013-11-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1959 Olivetti Lettera 22 Serial # 713892 This was a $10 craigslist find that has a busted return lever - a harder problem to fix than it would seem. Until that gets squared away, I've used it as a parts machine for another L22 restoration for my friend Abi. Not much other than the lever and the crud and scratches on the shell is wrong with it, so eventually this will get restored once I find another parts machine.

Gifted to Key Snap.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
