1969 Olivetti Valentine Serial # 5145628 1969 Olivetti Valentine typewriter, Serial # 5145628 Massimo Martelancz's 1969 Olivetti Valentine typewriter. 2024-06-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Massimo Martelancz: 1969 Olivetti Valentine Serial # 5145628 Found at a cheap price at one of the usual Sunday mornings flea markets. Unfortunately it's missing the case and this is a serious lack for a Valentine. Otherwise it was very dirty and with a couple of mechanical defects easily restored. Typewriter is now fully working. A good addition to the collection even though Valentine is not one of my favorite typewriter.

I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s to early 1900s. After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer now the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.
