Description Abstract of the essence of Antique Typewriters. Some of us may be old enough to remember typing on manual typewriters for our everyday needs. As an increasingly popular collector item, you might be one of the lucky ones to own a valuable one. In fact, the most expensive typewriter sold to date was a light blue, Lettera 32 Olivetti manual machine for $254,500 in an auction. Why this much?! - it belonged to author Cormac McCarthy, who used it to write All the Pretty Horses, No Country for Old Men, The Orchard Keeper, Blood Meridian, The Road and many more books and screenplays etc. He originally bought it for $50 in 1963.
