1970 Olivetti Lettera DL Serial # 5447716 1970 Olivetti Lettera DL typewriter, Serial # 5447716 Guillermo Fernandez Boan's 1970 Olivetti Lettera DL typewriter. 2020-11-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Guillermo Fernandez Boan: 1970 Olivetti Lettera DL Serial # 5447716 The black vinyl and silver Olivetti Lettera DL was the typewriter Francis Ford chooses to work on his script for "The Godfather" with Mario Puzo. There is plenty of photographic testimony showing Mr. Coppola working on this very typewriter model (take a look at: http://mrtypewriter.tripod.com/olivettiletter.htm).
Mine was made in Olivetti's Ivrea plant (Italy), and its keytops are rounded, not square as usual. Perhaps the same keytops used in Olivetti's Valentines.
Is a solid portable, with a beautiful silver case and a snappy feeling.
One to easily write a long movie script, even if you are not Francis Ford Coppola (who you are not, aren't you?).
A jewel in my Olivetti's typewriter collection. Love it!
