1964 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1199596 1964 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-1199596 rock harris's 1964 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2015-01-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1964 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1199596 This is the best quality and best condition and best typing machine I have. Its precision and type quality are unmatched by any other machine I own.

I found it in a local Mid-Century Modern "antiques" store for a ridiculously low amount. Funny, considering the other machines they had were much more expensive (I bought one of them too, as it was fairly priced for what it was).

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
