Impressive typewriter. Maybe not the best looking one, but leaves many of its competitors far behind. IÂ´m not fully sure about the model, and the serial number is also quite puzzling, but it has to be a 60Â´s typewriter.
I got it in quite good condition, and itÂ´s ready to type again. Top quality here, for sure!
--- UPDATE ---
IÂ´ve taken new photos because the old ones were a bit horrible. In addition, IÂ´m pretty sure this should be a Torpedo 18s, but IÂ´m quite lost with Torpedo models. Any help on that?
Regarding the typewriter itself, letÂ´s say itÂ´s different from what I thought at first. ItÂ´s not that awesome, but itÂ´s more than capable of doing a good job. Those keytops reek of smaller Remingtons, and the machine is in awesome conditon. Somehow itÂ´s been well looked after, and thereÂ´s no dust, no rust, no nothing. Only the tab set dial is broken, and I have to repair it.

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