2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus Serial # 231535 2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus typewriter, Serial # 231535 James Gifford's 2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus typewriter. 2017-09-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 2007 Olivetti MS 25 plus Serial # 231535 Made in China and types like it. Actually not too bad except the 6 and w like to go for a skip, and the carriage return is very stiff. But for $30, a curiosity worth entertaining. I can only assume that the numbers across the back are the date of manufacture and serial (as did another user). I've looked everywhere else and came up empty.

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
