my first olivetti is an underwood 319

made in spain rather than italy.
And surprisingly well represented in the collecting resources:
Machines of Loving Grace mentions it as a curiosity at the bottom of page
and there's yet another link to strikethru's blog
and this awesome post at Retro Tech Geneva

So I feel I'm in good company!  this one is already at work on the novel since the ribbon is pretty good.


  1. Nice find! Despite the wholly plastic body, these write surprisingly well. Hope you're enjoying it.

  2. I do like it.
    A later strikethru post mentioned getting rid of her 319 because she didn't like it. That was funny.

  3. I just bought one--it is truly amazing!


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
