Instead, it has a lever on the right side to release the margin. It also has flimsy construction, including using plastic "fingers" to hold the ends of springs. (Two had broken off on this machine but I was able to make metal replacements.) Serial no. (482278) is stamped on the back of the plastic body. Italian keyboard layout. Made in the 1970s in Italy.

I have collected typewriters since the early 1970s. My first collectible machine was a Mignon, but I also had everyday typers then, first a Voss ST-24 and an Olivetti Praxis 48, and then a Hermes 3000 and a Hermes 10. Over the last decade or so, I've turned my focus from early machines (Lambert, Blickensderfer, Hammond, Smith-Premier, etc.) to portables.

Besides typewriters, I also am avid about Studebakers, and have had a 1964 Studebaker GT Hawk since 1979.
