1918 Oliver 9 Serial # 709998 1918 Oliver 9 typewriter, Serial # 709998 Gerald Ambrose's 1918 Oliver 9 typewriter. 2018-08-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1918 Oliver 9 Serial # 709998 I got this around 2011. My dad fixed the mainspring for me and it works pretty well. A few of the keys print out of alignment but all and all it is not bad.

This machine is very unique to use and I am a fan of the three-bank, double shift keyboard.

The database says that up to 800000 is a 1919 I am about 90002 under this so I might be in the 1917 to 1918 range, but I am not 100% sure.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
