1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2132743 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # 2132743 Thomas Winningham's 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2019-09-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Thomas Winningham: 1964 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2132743 As a nerd, I was looking for a serial number as close to Cormac McCarthy's Lettera 32. But I also was curious about the single-piece carriage lock (which I now feel does work better than the later two-piece) and the ribbon spool arms. Overall this is a great machine. The platen and feed rollers have been resurface and it's a beast, will hand anything I throw at it, from cheap paper to heavy stationary and envelopes and everything in between.

Gave up writing on a computer, switched to a typewriter because my cats won't lay on the keyboard.
