1974 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # C217844 1974 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # C217844 Tas Kyprianou's 1974 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2022-10-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1974 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # C217844 These little Letteras are incredible. They type like no other machine I own. SO fast, so accurate, so pleasurable. They are really small too and yet love being put through their paces.
This was the first Lettera 32 I owned. They are brilliant little typers and really easy to work on inside if you ever need to. Watch out for the cases though. Their zips are pants.

The hammoered finish is WAY nicer to look at and to touch. Far more resistant to scratches too.

These bases are MUCH easier to remove than the push-stud style ones.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - Bought an Everest Mod 90 after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
Notwithstanding the Linea 88 parts machine, my collection now consists of 27 typewriters.
My absolute favourite is my 1939 Royal KMM. It's both the prettiest and the nicest to type on. Until that recently came along, my Underwood Universal was winning the beauty pageant albeit whilst having a podium tussle with my Smith Corona Clipper and my Remington Non-Tab Portable. Like Bagpuss, those two are both saggy and a bit loose at the seams but I love them. Having used the Adler Universal recently, I'll admit it is my second-best typer. Effortless. My Royal Diana however is not far behind. It has a sublime touch and feel and is easily worthy of holding its own against my Blue Bird / Torpedo 18s, Hermes 3000 Mk 3, 2000, the FACIT TP1, and my other Olympia SMs. I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have collected such a beautiful bunch.
