1969 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 Serial # 4600374 1969 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 typewriter, Serial # 4600374 Brad Sarno's 1969 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 typewriter. 2014-02-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Brad Sarno: 1969 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 Serial # 4600374 The Lettera 33 is apparently a Lettera 32 under the new looking shell. It's a fine typer, very fast and easy touch. It's precise and prints well on the page. An enjoyable machine. This is what wrote the Godfather...

This particular one was made in Italy and I hear that's a good thing. The case is in excellent shape and it even came with the dust cover.

I find that the Olivetti engineering is very nice and the machining and build quality too is nice. It's a tight machine and seems nicely refined which makes sense as the Lettera has had many years to evolve.

This one has an 11-pitch typeface.

I've spent my life as a mechanical and electronics tinkerer, bikes, cars, lawnmowers, appliances, cameras, audio gear, guitars, amplifiers, and pedal steel guitars. I was trained as a typist for 2 years back in the late 70's on IBM Selectric II's. At home I recall my mother having an Olympia SM3. More recently we got our daughter a typewriter for Christmas, and that somehow sparked my own personal interest in these fine and interesting machines. Now it's a habit that just won't quit. Daily searches on Craigslist, frequent trips to antique stores & malls, garage sales, etc. It's a fun and healthy addiction.
