1963 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-988371 1963 Olympia SG1 typewriter, Serial # 7-988371 Glen Crookston's 1963 Olympia SG1 typewriter. 2018-09-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Glen Crookston: 1963 Olympia SG1 Serial # 7-988371 Machine had been neglected for decades. Paint was pealing off in layers, the original clear coat shedding like snake skin. Mechanically it was frozen up with layers of crystallized, solidified lubricant. Heavy as a tank, I painted it like one. The back panels are the original finish cleaned with mild soap and water. The carriage retains the uncleaned original finish. Elite Pitch
