196X Optima Humber 88 Serial # 1954204 196X Optima Humber 88 typewriter, Serial # 1954204 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 196X Optima Humber 88 typewriter. 2023-11-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 196X Optima Humber 88 Serial # 1954204 I bought this Optima off of a very nice lady who also had an Imperial 55 for sale, which I also bought off of her.

The Optima is in very nice shape, a little dirty but nothing major. Really just needs some blowing out with an air compressor. It's a very solid typer.
