1902 Oliver 3 Serial # 54202 1902 Oliver 3 typewriter, Serial # 54202 John Abbott's 1902 Oliver 3 typewriter. 2020-01-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 1902 Oliver 3 Serial # 54202 1050. Pretty sure this is a 1902, as serial number 41702 is listed as a 1901. This is the fourth Oliver in my collection, but definitely the oldest. All of the parts are intact, but a lot of rust getting in the way of all operations. Slowly but surely it is coming back to life.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.
