1975 Olivetti Lettera 25 Serial # 7369929 1975 Olivetti Lettera 25 typewriter, Serial # 7369929 Bill Rachmad's 1975 Olivetti Lettera 25 typewriter. 2021-04-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bill Rachmad: 1975 Olivetti Lettera 25 Serial # 7369929 This is first typewriter I had ever laid my hands on. Came to me in working condition with the messed up carriage release lever which I thought function like a tab button because it only moves the carriage for few spaces only. But a little tweaking after that, the lever is corrected and it function very well soon after. Typing is great with it, a 12 CPI typer, although I'm not a fan of its card holder as you reach to the end of a page, the paper would slip out too easily. Originally in a greenish beige colour but I repainted it into a soft pink. Proud of my amateur work. I named her, Giúlia. An Italian name fitting for an Italian machine.

5th April ‘21 - She's sold to another fellow enthusiast. Glad to see her in another lovely home~
