1966 Olivetti-Underwood 21 Serial # 676440 1966 Olivetti-Underwood 21 typewriter, Serial # 676440 Daniel Deary's 1966 Olivetti-Underwood 21 typewriter. 2023-07-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Deary: 1966 Olivetti-Underwood 21 Serial # 676440 Acquired this from SGW and while dirty it performed flawlessly. It cleaned up nicely and except for a few blemishes. it looks VG. This is basically just like the Studio 44 in a different skin. One big surprise is that it came with an elite sans-serif "Olivetti Cubic" typeface but it also resembles the "Quadrato "typeface. Notice the capital letter J and the squared off #3, which seems to differentiate it from other techno typefaces. Discovered several months after acquired it that it had 11 cpi....Sheesh! It also has the Olivetti paragraph indent feature, but it indents 12 spaces (1 inch) instead of the normal 5…this is normal I found out.

Retired. Have been a Photography geek for many years...old school film. Also have been an audiophile and have been collecting vinyl before it became fashionable. Accidently(?) began collecting typewriters in the early1980's...I had four by 2006. After I inherited my mothers Hermes 3000 in 2017 my interest really took off and now I have 28 typewriters in total. The majority of my collection are Smith Corona's largely because they are plentiful, easy to work on and are very good typers.
