197x Olivetti Lettera 25 Serial # 3852875 197x Olivetti Lettera 25 typewriter, Serial # 3852875 Mark Petersen's 197x Olivetti Lettera 25 typewriter. 2016-08-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 197x Olivetti Lettera 25 Serial # 3852875 This was given to me by a retiring department head at Virginia Tech who had bought it second-hand for his father who preferred typing to handwriting. Apparently his father in law used it twice when he visited back in 1994 or 95.
It had been used before that time it seems, though maybe not much as the machine is in fairly good shape. And it comes with a totally gay purse that's fun too. Honestly I can foresee times when it could be nice walking somewhere to write or while traveling.
