1967 Olivetti Lettera 33 Serial # 4579017 1967 Olivetti Lettera 33 typewriter, Serial # 4579017 David Wing's 1967 Olivetti Lettera 33 typewriter. 2016-12-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Wing: 1967 Olivetti Lettera 33 Serial # 4579017 From the daughter of the original owner, very low price on eBay, and virtually unused. Complete with all the docs and Olivetti-logo'd bag of desiccant. The brush could be Olivetti; it has the design spirit, but it might be from one of the later electrics.
Just bartered this off for haircuts; the black -and-chrome goes very well with the salon's black/white atmosphere.

Status: Typewriter Hunter

Living in So. Calif. USA. Bought a mint SC flattop at an estate sale for $5 some years ago, and enjoyed the tactility of typing after using computers since 1968, the punch-card era. I gave it to my mother-in-law to exercise her arthritic fingers. After she passed away last year I found it among her things. I wanted something newer, so bought an Olympia SM3. I am not a collector, but seem to have acquired more than 30 machines since March 2016, and have passed several on to family and friends, and bartered with others.
