Olivetti Lettera 22/A Note on the Typewriter Database

Apparently, the serial numbers listed on the Typewriter Database are for January 1st of each year. That means that this Olivetti is a 1956 model, not a 1957 model. Either way, it was most likely sold by The Typewriter Clinic.

  1. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who has to remind myself that if the SN lies between those given for, say, 1950 and 1951, then it's a 1950 model.
