1970 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2455544 1970 Olympia SG3 typewriter, Serial # 7-2455544 James Grooms's 1970 Olympia SG3 typewriter. 2024-07-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1970 Olympia SG3 Serial # 7-2455544 Painted by a typewriter tech for his mother, who was a K-state fan. And he actually did a pretty good job, as both sides of each panel are painted. It has faded a bit though. Maybe a little cleaner wax will brighten it up?

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
