1970’s Working Olivetti Lettera DL Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Olivetti Plant in Barcelona (Spain)
Working Olivetti Lettera DL vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guides and the paper release lever all work as intended. This iconic piece of originally Italian design is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any hassle.
The overall condition is excellent. The keys type well and the Olivetti functions as a whole. Minor signs of use and age are present.
This Italian typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Olivetti typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
The very rare Olivetti Lettera DL typewriter is located in London, UK.
