197X Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # 1246054 197X Olivetti Linea 98 typewriter, Serial # 1246054 Jack B's 197X Olivetti Linea 98 typewriter. 2015-04-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 197X Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # 1246054 This Olivetti was found in the basement of my school, with three others including the Olympia SG1 I already have on the database. All were given to me, the other two are not home with me yet because I'll be using them in a history fair project.

I love the type action of this machine, it is smooth and crisp. However, I don't think I'll ever give it much use because of the massive typeface it has. Not very practical!

It is worth noting that this machine is BIG. Comparable in stature to an Olympia SG.
