1970 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2340296 frame; 8-2384206 carriage 1970 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-2340296 frame; 8-2384206 carriage Michael Hoehne's 1970 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2014-02-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1970 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2340296 frame; 8-2384206 carriage This is the S (or the L?) model. 13 inch platen; has the paper inserter; missing paper support; sluggish and a bit scratched but not bad---should loosen up with use.

And it did loosen up with use. And it has a strong techno typeface. The serial numbers on the frame and the carriage do not match; how common is that?

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SG3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SG3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
