1959 Olympia SG1

Serial #7-431306

Purchased through craigslist in Princeton, West Virginia for $25. I want to love this machine more than I do. I had always wanted an SG-1 and this one is mint. It is sluggish though, and many pieces including the paper bail feel very shoddily made and cheap.

This machine is now with Brian Brumfield who loves it far more than I did!

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
