1961 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-687366 1961 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 7-687366 Nick Clowes's 1961 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2020-05-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Clowes: 1961 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-687366 Bought in the UK then moved to southern Poland. A mighty machine. This machine gets more use than the rest of my collection combined. It's a pure work horse. Has a few minor cosmetic issues, such as flaking paint and flaking chrome on the return arm, but still looks great. The carriage is not super smooth on mine. It makes a raspy noise that I don't think it should.
