The Brazilian version of the Olivetti Lettera 82. A cheap typewriter intended to be used by young people, or those who were looking for a typewriter in order to learn how to type (hence, into the plastic case, is a graphic showing the way each finger goes in the keyboard)
This typewriter is operative, and the typeface specimen sample is included.
Not a workhorse, nor a solid portable as the Letteras 22 and 32 were, just a plastic carriage shift cheapo.
The flashy color adds attractive, and don't look for much more than this...
