1900 Oliver 2 Serial # 31997 1900 Oliver 2 typewriter, Serial # 31997 Mark Schrad's 1900 Oliver 2 typewriter. 2023-09-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1900 Oliver 2 Serial # 31997 Another work in progress from the Bob Aubert collection of Delran, NJ (August, 2023). The base unit of this Oliver 2 is in pretty decent shape, but the entire carriage needs to be reassembled. But it looks like Bob had made good progress on it, despite being in pieces. The rubber on the platen and feed rollers are new, the ribbon-spool lids and paper table look to be newly machined and primed, and in his collection were a number of screen-printing screens, including one for an Oliver 2. So I'll hope to be printing it on the paper table at one point.
