I have been an Italian typewriter collector for many many years. At that time, I loved very old typewriters from late 1800s and early 1900s.a After a break of a few years I returned to collect typewriters but no longer so old, I prefer the design of the 40's, 50's and 60's. Yes, I am an affectionate collector of Olivetti, of course, but I'm attracted to all the other brands from that period, not just Italian.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olivetti M20 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olivetti Serial Number page and the Olivetti M20 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
