Drove 40 minutes to see this SG1 at a moving sale, only to find it trashed: broken paper table, bent character gage, chipped platen guard, and grimy sawdust sprinkled throughout like iron filings on an electromagnet. Fortunately the $20 I paid for it included two virtually unused boxes of correction film, as well as the original Olympia cleaning kit (also trashed), some brushes (very worn) and a screwdriver, an original Olympia dust cover (torn and taped), and a cheap wooden typewriter table. And he threw in a set of four modern vTech landline phones. The typewriter had the senatorial font in elite. Donated to Ace Typewriter as a parts machine.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SG1 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SG1 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
