1969 Olivetti Praxis 48 Serial # 3004329 1969 Olivetti Praxis 48 typewriter, Serial # 3004329 Dave Philips's 1969 Olivetti Praxis 48 typewriter. 2016-02-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dave Philips: 1969 Olivetti Praxis 48 Serial # 3004329 This one is just a great machine. Fun to type on and fun to look at. I decided that I would only have one electric in the house, so the Selectric went packing. The style of this one is just irresistible in person.

I am unsure of the date, though. My serial number is much earlier than the ones on the database. Help me out if I've got the year wrong. That's definitely the number though. I've checked it several times.

I am a musician living in Los Angeles. I got into typewriters because I love the way typing feels. Here in L.A. it is hard to find typewriters that are reasonably priced, but I occasionally manage to stumble across them.
