Olivetti Valentine

Here's an attendee with her Olivetti Valentine, with a special one-of-a-kind keyboard, which features a Yen Symbol!

Here was something I've NEVER seen... A reporter who just interviewed Mike and I walked over to a corner where an SM-9 was sitting, opened his notebook, and started typing his news story on the SM-9!! He said it brought back many memories from when he started journalism way back when...


  1. sweet! How many people came to participate? Did they get gawkers too?
    I covet or yearn for a few special portables like your new hermes, my collection is all whatever I can find, but I get lucky sometimes. check out my blog for the latest two.

  2. About a dozen or so people came to participate, and it was really fun! And yes, there were gawkers. And don't worry, just keep looking, and you'll find the typewriters you want! I waited a year and a half to get my hands on a Hermes Rocket, and now I've got one! And I like the two posts about Corona Week as well! That Silent-Super is a steal!
