Entry for July 31, 2008
You don't see too much around the internet on OPTIMA portables, but I've created a page to show what information there is.  One or two of these machines might surprise even seasoned collectors.

Hi, I´m giving you a commentary so I can get in toutch with you. I haven´t read this blog, but I need to ask you something.

I´ve ben searching for a typewriter for a long time, and my boyfriend found one in his dead grandmother´s house that he gave to me when they sold the house. It is a grey, small typewriter by the name of Nippon p-2oo, the name written on the top of it. The ribbons have been used til their death, and I´m wondering if you know what kind of ribbons to buy for it. It is perfectly functioning, and I desperatly googled its name to find info, and found your webpage.

Hopefully you´re able to help me.
I have read a bit about the brand, are these type of typewriters rare, or did I get that wrong?
Is is even possible to find ribbons for it?

Please answer soon, I´m vary very thankful for your help:)

Hi Mr. Davis,
I'm a reporter with The Globe and Mail in Toronto doing a story on typewriter collectors for our newspaper; the story will run next Friday nationally in print and online. Would you have 10 minutes to tell me about your collection on Wednesday February 25th?

I look forward to speaking,
Zosia

Dear Mr. Davis,
I have a typewriter of my grandparents of Smith Corona and would like to sell it. Have you any idea how I can do that, and what is the value of it (in the Netherlands)? The type is the familiar flat-topped large CORONA variant, first introduced about 1934, in a box.
I look forward to get a reaction.

Kind regards, Marguerite
