1960 Olympia SG1

Serial #7-606332

Some wear but what a durable, beautiful, complex beast that still types well more than a half century after it was manufactured. I haven't sorted out what all the gears do, including the gear-shift type of device on the right side. Really heavy, but a great machine. It's missing the badge, in case anyone has a spare.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
