1968 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2114042 1968 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-2114042 Sue MacDonald's 1968 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2020-05-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sue MacDonald: 1968 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2114042 Was thrilled to discover this giant on the shelf while checking out a GW thrift store.
The paper feed lever/injector is quite fun (I am easy to amuse) and the letter spacing feature is pretty neat too.
I use this one to type recipes because I like being able to type the little "degree" symbol.

Points: 400

Typewriter user since childhood--"Endofthehall Press" (produced a magazine for my big sister, I did) and avid hunter for many years. Partial to portables/ultraportables, but do love my standard models too. I use my typewriters for letters, recipes, lists, stories, pondering, and in art/fabric creations.
