197X* Olivetti Valentine Serial # 5405874 197X* Olivetti Valentine typewriter, Serial # 5405874 Carl H's 197X* Olivetti Valentine typewriter. 2018-01-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Carl H: 197X* Olivetti Valentine Serial # 5405874 German keyboard
unknown typeface

Made in Barcelona, Spain.

First produced in Italy, later relocated to Spain and in the end they produced them in Mexico. So I'm guessing this is a 1970s machine. According to Carlo Torchio's Olivetti book the Valentine was produced until the year 2000!? Probably a typo...

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
