1960 Olympia Monica Serial # 1683103 1960 Olympia Monica typewriter, Serial # 1683103 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1960 Olympia Monica typewriter. 2020-07-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1960 Olympia Monica Serial # 1683103 This machine is a bit of an oddball. At first glance it appears to be a Monica, but notice the carriage return lever is that from an SM8/SM9. It also has the manually set tab stops as seen on an SM3. We think this machine may be a prototype, perhaps an "SM6", but a lot of mystery still surrounds this particular machine.
