Olivetti Valentine made in Barcelona. Can not find the date information in the DB. Any suggestions?
I noticed some other Valentine's had two little dots molded into the top of the case just above the word "valentine". Mine did not have these dots, but had a bit of scuffing along that top edge. My guess was the dots were added at a later date to protect the top of the case from this scuffing. I added my own soft adhesive dots in about the right place to help prevent further scuffing. That's what you can see in my photos.

Long time typewriter admirer, newly minted collector. I was part of the IBM Boca Raton team that built the PC XT, the PC AT and IBM PC DOS (IBM's version of MS DOS). Little did we know that we were contributing to the shift away from these beautiful machines.
In those days (1980's) every admin bay at work had two IBM Selectric typewriters and our supply cabinets had fresh boxes of ribbons and type elements for anyone to help themselves. If I only knew then ...
