1962 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 543423 1962 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 543423 Paul Coogan's 1962 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter. 2023-08-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Coogan: 1962 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 543423 11 CPI Script offered to me via DM on FB. Baby blue and made the year I was born. The platen had slipped out of the left flange, possibly during shipping and was a simple fix. Case zipper was functional and only one corner needed a small bit of glue. This is the best smelling machine ever. It smells of a mixture of hand lotion, channel perfume, and machine oil.

Greetings! Typewriters have come and gone during my life but now I am focused on having the machine that fits the best. I sent off my Corona Standard in favor of a Olivetti Lettera 35 and a Triumph Contessa. I am a project manager by trade and activist by choice, I recently typed a letter to the Mayor to have a greater impact than email. Space requires I limit my collection to 2 machines.
