1965 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1386251 1965 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-1386251 Mike Green's 1965 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2023-12-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1965 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1386251 A friend picked this up for me at a thrift shop. Big boy got a good cleaning and now is performing like it use to. My first standard size and I"m impressed with the robust build meant for heavy use, day in, day out. It has small 12 cpi type, which seems counter to the size of the beast. The keyboard features fractions, a degree symbol, and a few that I don't understand, like an underscored "TH".
