This may be a piece of junk with no chance of recovery, the sorry remains of a long-gone typewriter...
And it is. The important thing is that is one of the main typewriters at PascualÂ´s workshop. It is one of the first wedges he worked with like 30 years ago, and itÂ´s finished its life as a parts machine. You can tell itÂ´s completed its duty with extreme care.
He is proud of this little wedge, and he refuses to let it go, so this is just an homage to this humble typewriter that saw better times.
Sadly, the serial number sticker is gone.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
