196X* Olivetti Diaspron 82 Serial # 3900780 196X* Olivetti Diaspron 82 typewriter, Serial # 3900780 Markus Russell's 196X* Olivetti Diaspron 82 typewriter. 2018-08-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Markus Russell: 196X* Olivetti Diaspron 82 Serial # 3900780 Beautiful machine found in an attic of a purchased house. Thankfully the machine was pretty clean of dust and critters given the situation. The machine has a Spanish keyboard layout featuring ñ, ¡, º, and others.

This machine was built in the Ivrea factory, though I've read many were built in the Glasgow factory as well.

My 82 has damage to the front right corner of the machine, likely from shipping or a bad drop onto a table at some point... it also is missing the plastic folding attachment which holds / measures the progress made on the paper being used.
