1965 Olympia Splendid 66 Serial # 5-1114952 1965 Olympia Splendid 66 typewriter, Serial # 5-1114952 Gary Wann's 1965 Olympia Splendid 66 typewriter. 2019-01-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gary Wann: 1965 Olympia Splendid 66 Serial # 5-1114952 An Olympia Splendid 66 in fair condition. It's been dropped at some point and the rear carriage panel was bent preventing the paper support from popping up. Only a little light cleaning of the segment so far and 'formed' the bent rear panel as far as I dare to allow the paper support to function. I'm fairly sure that this is a 1965 model, but I don't see the '5' prefix in the serial number database.

Looking a bit tidier now.  Ribbon cover gently rubbed down  and lightly resprayed.  Both the logo's were removed and replaced and the faded silvering highlighted with a silver sharpie pen.

Retired Air Traffic Controller. Got my first typewriter from Santa when I was about 8 years old and woke my parents up at 3am as I just had to try it out when I woke up! Have had an old Imperial 58 in the family for longer than I can remember. A computer geek, but I just love the mechanics of typewriters and have started to collect a few more to keep the Imperial company!
