197X Amaya IM 93 Serial # Unknown 197X Amaya IM 93 typewriter, Serial # Unknown Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 197X Amaya IM 93 typewriter. 2017-12-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 197X Amaya IM 93 Serial # Unknown Best value for 12€!

There seems to be more typewriters made by Imperial than I thought. In fact, I had no idea that such thing as this Amaya 93 existed. Looks like a middle step beween the Amaya 85 and the Sedic Pulsatta Deluxe, manufactured after Imperial either changed name or sod the company (I don´t really know what happened). Could the IM on the model name reflect the change from Imperial to IMESA? For sure this is a 70´s typewriter.

This extremely colorful typewriter looks amazing. Not only the bright orange and black livery is outstanding, but also the weird shape of everything. The return lever and the carriage release are those of the Pulsatta Deluxe, but the carriage profile... and the case! Yes, a lot of plastic there, but it´s a fairly solid typewriter.

Works really well because apparently the former owner has typed approximately a couple of lines with it. It´s basically brand new!

I´d like to put together a timeline of Imperial which makes sense with all the models that pop out from time to time, taking as a base the great article on ETCetera 89 by Alfredo Sirvent, Fransu Marín and Richard Polt. I wonder of there´s any source for s/n´s or models, because as far as I know the only thing to do is to join the pieces as they pop up.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Amaya IM 93 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Amaya Serial Number page and the Amaya IM 93 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
