190X Oliver 3 Serial # 142108 190X Oliver 3 typewriter, Serial # 142108 Bryan Kruk's 190X Oliver 3 typewriter. 2015-10-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Bryan Kruk: 190X Oliver 3 Serial # 142108 I bought this really nice Oliver No. 3 from an antique store for $190 yesterday.

The carriage string is broken, so it's not working, but I have plans for fixing it up so it can be considering a working typewriter. Also, the right spool cap is missing. This typewriter still has the wood base and tin cover, and the cover seemed to have protected this typewriter very well from when it was stored over the years. The paint and labels are in amazing condition, and there's no rust anywhere on it.
It wasn't the best deal that I've gotten on a typewriter, but I'm still very happy to have this one in my collection.

I'm a 17 year old typewriter collector/dealer in Pennsylvania.
I bought my first typewriter, an Olympia SM4, from a church flea market when I was 11. Ever since, I've loved typewriters.

I sell the newer models on my website (typewriters101.com) but I also have a quite large collection that I've built up of about 75 typewriters which are not for sale.
The machines I sell are cleaned, oiled, and have new ribbons. It's definitely provided plenty of money for machines to buy for my collection. I hope to share many of my machines from my collection here.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Oliver 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Oliver Serial Number page and the Oliver 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
