1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-431306 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 7-431306 Mark Petersen's 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2014-12-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-431306 Purchased through craigslist in Princeton, West Virginia for $25. I want to love this machine more than I do. I had always wanted an SG-1 and this one is mint. It is sluggish though, and many pieces including the paper bail feel very shoddily made and cheap.

This machine is now with Brian Brumfield who loves it far more than I did!
