1966 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 05 1452760 1966 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 05 1452760 Jonathan Crowe's 1966 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter. 2021-08-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Crowe: 1966 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 05 1452760 Pica No. 12 typeface, with a French-Canadian keyboard. Bought on eBay in November 2020 for an incredibly low price as Olympia SFs go, especially since this typewriter is in just terrific shape. One of the best platens in my collection--no punch-through whatsoever--to the point that I have to assume it was replaced at some point in this typewriter's life.
