1962 Optima Super Serial # 1976429 1962 Optima Super typewriter, Serial # 1976429 Michael Hoehne's 1962 Optima Super typewriter. 2023-08-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1962 Optima Super Serial # 1976429 It didn't work at the thrift store so I gambled with a $2 donation and took it home, mainly because I had no other Optima. It works OK now and can only get better. Got it with bottom part of fabric case only.

This incarnation of Optima was made by Erika and rebranded Optima for the US market.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
