    Description

    Oliver Typewriter Advertising Pin picturing the "Printype" man on the button. Pieces advertising typewriters have become highly collectible and the celluloid novelty items representing them are very scarce. This pin advertises the new innovation, printype, that captivated and was often described as alluring to the typewriter print world. This new typewriter face produced by Oliver would look like the typeface in newspapers, magazines and books, bringing cleaner, more readable type to the typewritten letter. This little man with "Printype" on his hat was the new standard logo for that process and for Oliver. Excellent green color and with an original "Oliver Typewriter" paper in the back, this rare pin is a real treasure.
