The term "thereabouts" in the above text doesn't make sense, on second read. But I guess you know what I meant?
Where are my manners, please see links to Olivander (Collapsing World), A Treatise on Pedestrianism, and Manual Entry under "The Typosphere" at left.
And hey, that's my dad. He's a swell guy.
The Great Petaluma Haul
I feel compelled to update this post with information from one Olivander, ubercollector, who has set me straight on what the heck this machine actually is. In his words:
The "11" indicates platen length, not the model #. The base unit is that of a No.6 (you can tell by the ribbon selector switch being set up on top of the front plate instead of facing out). Think of how Olivetti turned the Lettera 32 base machine into many, many different models.
The name on the space bar positively identifies the model name as Champion. I don't what was different about the Champion to separate it from the regular No.6. Maybe it was only marketing. I've seen them called Master, too, and they look the same to me.
So what you have is a Champion built around a No.6 chassis.
Thank you Olivander!
