1959 Olympia SF Serial # 95- 136652 1959 Olympia SF typewriter, Serial # 95- 136652 Kristian Faulkenberry's 1959 Olympia SF typewriter. 2020-06-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristian Faulkenberry: 1959 Olympia SF Serial # 95- 136652 Happened upon a nice couple selling a few typewriters, one of which is this nice little SF. I have an SF Deluxe so I wasn't really looking at this one but they made a good deal for the set so here it is. Evidently they were a political couple, since they have their party stickers on the plastic cover. The colored gels showing finger positions don't want to come off, but I haven't applied heat yet.

Description:

Happened upon a nice couple selling a few typewriters, one of which is this nice little SF. I have an SF Deluxe so I wasn't really looking at this one but they made a good deal for the set so here it is. Evidently they were a political couple, since they have their party stickers on the plastic cover. The colored gels showing finger positions don't want to come off, but I haven't applied heat yet.

Cover has a few cracks and scrapes but the latches are secure and the political party stickers are a nice touch.
