197X Olivetti Lettera DL Serial # 8697071 197X Olivetti Lettera DL typewriter, Serial # 8697071 Benjamin Esh's 197X Olivetti Lettera DL typewriter. 2024-04-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Benjamin Esh: 197X Olivetti Lettera DL Serial # 8697071 Olivetti Lettera DL. I had bought this Lettera DL on eBay. It required very little cleaning and was in complete working order. It is one of the first plastic bodies Lettera's that Olivetti produced. It doesn't feel cheap like a Lettera 25 and isn't as heavy as a Lettera 35. It essentially feels like a Lettera 32, but with a solid grey plastic body with black vinyl wrapped around certain parts. It's a classic look that is a joy to type on.

I'm a software engineer in the Chicagoland area. I've been collecting "vintage" vinyl, computers, mechanical keyboards and typewriters since I was a kid. Born into an analog world, but grew up in a digital one.

My wife is a writer and I enjoy problem solving and puzzles, so naturally fixing I fell in love with fixing and maintaining typewriters and she then gets to enjoy all of these machines!
