1966 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1633539 1966 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-1633539 Erik Bruchez's 1966 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2023-11-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Bruchez: 1966 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-1633539 This machine was in a rough cosmetic condition when I got it, with:

- paint or whiteout splashes over the keyboard and front of the machine
- paint has chips and scuffs
- broken paper injector handle
- broken right margin stop button
- broken color selector button
- missing paper support
- missing carriage return lever cover and screw

I cleaned the machine (see the "Restoration in progress" photo album) and although some plastic parts are broken the machine works perfectly well! It types very cleanly and smoothly.

This machine has a "UCLA" stamp on its back.

I started collecting my first pre-WW2 standard typewriters in 2017. Since then I have added a few machines to my collection, which now ranges from the 1890s to the 1980s. As of 2020, I have more big standard (desktop) typewriters than portables, and a few standard electrics.
