It's nice to see one of these on eBay without a ridiculous asking price. In fact, this 1960s Ettore Sottsass Olivetti Valentine typewriter is still at a very modest price.

This 1969 design, named after its Valentine's Day launch, is perhaps the most sought-after typewriter around. Still of use, but also a great thingh to have on the desk just to look good.

In fact, this one looks particularly good, complete with its carry case and original Valentine folder in German. Condition overall is described as 'excellent' and thankfully, 'fully functional'.

More details on the site and if you fancy a bid, £2 is the asking price.
