1971 Olympia SG 3 D (N) Serial # 7-2709300 1971 Olympia SG 3 D (N) typewriter, Serial # 7-2709300 Christopher Kesting's 1971 Olympia SG 3 D (N) typewriter. 2021-04-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Christopher Kesting: 1971 Olympia SG 3 D (N) Serial # 7-2709300 An Olympia SG 3 N, which was specially modified for the German Bundeswehr. As an SG 3 D, it has a carriage lock, it has rollers at the back, and the top cover cannot be removed because it has locks (I removed these) And it has extra noise insulation inside. It was intended for military units in Saarland (Homburg), so it also has a small c with a cedilla and a fr (for franc), as the units were near the French border.

I'm just someone who writes with a typewriter. I'm actually a photographer. I am not a collector!
