1961 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-787170 1961 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 7-787170 Rick Willis's 1961 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2021-08-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rick Willis: 1961 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-787170 The second exception I've made to the portables-only rule, this great example was a gift a friend found locally. Serial number on the body frame and carriage rail is 7-787170. On the carriage underside is 8-811424. The right platen knob was missing--but it was under the ribbon cover! A fantastic typer with Olympia Elite 87 typeface (12 pitch).
