1978 Olympia SG3

Serial #7-4229907

Pica type
US keyboard

Technically I own this. I think it's still back at my parents' house… I got it for $5 at a yard sale back before I'd decided to not buy standards any more.
It was incredibly dirty of course, having been garage-stored for 10+ years.

I started collecting typewriters in 2006, but what started it all was using my mother's Brother Student-Riter XL1 in 2004. The next year I received my grandma's Smith-Corona Silent, which was enough to hold me over for a little while but eventually led to an obsession with manual portable typewriters.
