1977 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 9614527 1977 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter, Serial # 9614527 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1977 Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter. 2015-06-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1977 Olivetti Lettera 32 Serial # 9614527 Olivetti takes top billing, in this, the second iteration of badging used post Underwood buyout. This L32 with a French-Canadian keyboard is a stellar ultra-portable and I prefer it to the L22. Unfortunately, just as with the L22, I can't come to terms with the design of its keys. I'm at a loss to explain why - I think a scientific approach would be required - but I mis-hit keys more often on these Lettera models than on any of the other portables that I own.
