196x Olivetti Lettera 36 Serial # Unknown 196x Olivetti Lettera 36 typewriter, Serial # Unknown Andrew Wyderka's 196x Olivetti Lettera 36 typewriter. 2019-08-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Andrew Wyderka: 196x Olivetti Lettera 36 Serial # Unknown ShopGoodwill.com find.
One of the nicest portable electrics I've ever put my fingers on, but just don't have room for it.
Good belts, runs quiet, types nice.
Has that nasty repeating "ellipsis" "feature" often seen on SCM electrics, and which makes it all but impossible to type a single period on a forty year old machine.
Overall, lives up to its promise of an Italian Styled machine with German build quality.

I like standards, but will take what strikes my fancy, even if it doesn't strike the Platen.
