Olivetti Valentine (Red)
The Olivetti Valentine is one of the most iconic typewriters to over be produced.
Designed by Ettorree Sottsass in Barcelona Spain, this machine was made and designed to be used and enjoyed by creative people, and not so much as an office tool. This is one of the machines every typewriter collector wants in their collection!
Like most Valentine machines, it has some surface scratches in the ABS plastic shell from taking it out of its case. This is a design flaw on all pre-1970 Valentines.
Aside from being an iconic collectors piece, this machine works very well and can be quite an effective writing tool in the right hands.
Please note: The case is missing one of the rubber tabs and there are a few scratches along the left side of the machine. There is also a few spots of ink that we weren't able to get off, possibly something its new owner can get off. Price is reflective of these cosmetic imperfections.
