197X Maritsa 30 Serial # 30265692 197X Maritsa 30 typewriter, Serial # 30265692 Dimitris Nikou's 197X Maritsa 30 typewriter. 2020-07-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dimitris Nikou: 197X Maritsa 30 Serial # 30265692 Maritsa 30 typewriter with Greek keyboard, manufactured in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, by Typewriters Works. Purchased in good overall condition, as it was kept unused and stored for many years. I cannot be sure about the exact year of manufacture and it is impossible to find serial number records for Bulgarian made typewriters anywhere on the net. The woman from whom I bought it, told me that her father had purchased it new in the late 70's - but, I believe, it could be an early 80's machine.

I cleaned and oiled it, managed to solve some issues with sticky keys, changed the ribbon and now the typewriter works fine. It's a beautiful machine, looks cheap with all this plastic, but the mechanical parts give a confident feeling when I type. It's the first piece of my collection.
