1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 495521 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 495521 Erik Jaros's 1959 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2017-06-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Jaros: 1959 Olympia SG1 Serial # 495521 This rescue from the local goodwill had clearly been exposed to the Arizona dust and heat for quite a while. I'm in the process of a full teardown and clean. Here's hoping I can track down a paper rest. I get the feeling they were the first (and almost only) thing to break on these machines.

Just a guy with a love for writing and vintage machinery. Naturally I ended up here.
