195X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 116748 195X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 typewriter, Serial # 116748 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 195X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 typewriter. 2015-06-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 195X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 116748 Another Pluma 22, another livery for a great typewriter.

I received this one with its case, maintenance guide, an original brush and the factory label (see photos). In addition, it´s an early model with round keys instead of the later square ones. I still suspect the Hispano serial numbers can be different from the Italian Olivettis, but if they matched this would be a 1953 typewriter, which pretty much makes sense. A true bargain for 15 euros!

As expected, it works smoothly and lightly. It needs some cleaning, but even now it can give a lot of other portables a run for their money. The Pluma 22 is an outstanding portable, and so far I have it in three different colours.

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.
