The Typewriter Database 1968 Olympia Splendid 66 Serial # 5-16767524 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1968 Olympia Splendid 66 Serial # 5-16767524 The middle of the range Splendid, the 66 is the closest in terms of design and features to the original Olympia SF. What separates the two models is a ribbon colour selector, which the SF doesn't have. The slightly heavy action this particular machine is guilty of is not indicative of the SF range, and I'm willing to bet that it would be a more compliant typer after a little routine maintenance.
