Olivetti Lettera 22

I've had this typewriter since I was 13. I bought it new in 1958. It typed all my High School and College papers. It was replaced by an electric Ollivetti in 1975 which was replaced by an Apple IIc in 1985. It hasn't been used for at least 33 years and shows it. It will soon be off to Blue Moon Camera and Machine for a clean, lube, and adjust. Then the platen will be off to West Coast Platen for replacement. It will be my travel typwriter.
