1965 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2317122 1965 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # 2317122 Paul Coogan's 1965 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2023-11-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Coogan: 1965 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 2317122 11 CPI Courier from Goodwill online. For the price and minimal pictures, I expected it to be severely FUBAR but took a chance. The carriage was dislocated, possibly in shipping and popped back without disassembly. The amount of ink on the type slugs seemed to indicate it might have never been used beyond demonstration. The zipper on the case was in new condition as well. I find the half width space bar slightly annoying, but it has good action and alignment.

Greetings! Typewriters have come and gone during my life but now I am focused on having the machine that fits the best. I sent off my Corona Standard in favor of a Olivetti Lettera 35 and a Triumph Contessa. I am a project manager by trade and activist by choice, I recently typed a letter to the Mayor to have a greater impact than email. Space requires I limit my collection to 2 machines.
