1933 Olympia Progress Serial # 20363 1933 Olympia Progress typewriter, Serial # 20363 Jack B's 1933 Olympia Progress typewriter. 2015-03-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1933 Olympia Progress Serial # 20363 This Olympia was a birthday gift to myself, bought from another collector. It only had one major issue with the platen not line spacing when the return lever is pulled. I've got it fixed now for the most part, although it is still stiff to use.

This is a very, very nice machine to use with looks to match. The touch is nice and light. Not yet as good as an SM, but you can clearly see where the series got its start.

It did not have original spools, so I just used Olivetti spools which were the only ones that fit. Looks slightly odd, but good enough for me.
