19XX Olivetti Lettera 10 Serial # 0792012 19XX Olivetti Lettera 10 typewriter, Serial # 0792012 Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp's 19XX Olivetti Lettera 10 typewriter. 2021-09-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp: 19XX Olivetti Lettera 10 Serial # 0792012 What a Design, what a colour, what a moderate typing machine.
It maybe should be compaired with toy-typewriters, as it has a really stripped down construction, mostly consisting of plastic ( even under the hood ).

Purchased it from a girl who brought it from vacation in Spain to Berlin.
Cleaned and lubricated it, cause it had some superficial rust on its steely parts. The mainspring for the carriage movement was broken, so I replaced it with another one.

Now it works "fine" again, and isnt to bad to type a few words on at all.
