196X Olivetti Valentine Serial # 2048818 196X Olivetti Valentine typewriter, Serial # 2048818 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 196X Olivetti Valentine typewriter. 2019-11-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 196X Olivetti Valentine Serial # 2048818 Made in Mexico. Complete and operative.
Side by side over the name "Valentine" you can see two protuberant "dots" that you can not find in many other Valentines.
According to Mr. Greg Fudacz (The Antikeychop) "The most obvious changes pertain to the orange ribbon caps, which were made larger on later models, and the addition of two dimples to the top of the typewriter just over the keyboard. These dimples addressed a particular design flaw that left scuff marks on the Valentines from taking them in and out of their cases"
