1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-476701 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 7-476701 Zachary Thompson's 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2021-08-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Zachary Thompson: 1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-476701 Purchased from Scott R. of St. Paul in Summer 2020. He had it as part of a large collection of German machines, but did not remember whence he'd acquired it. Sun damage to the paint suggests a dealer badge, and AAA Typewriter of St. Paul (now Spectrum Business Services) did have a badge about that size and import Olympia. Machine was expertly cleaned and well maintained, requiring nothing but a little paint from me on the rulers. Original dust cover has some fountain pen ink from Scott, for which he apologized, but I think that it adds charm.
