1977 Olympia Traveller de Luxe Serial # 15-3946788 1977 Olympia Traveller de Luxe typewriter, Serial # 15-3946788 tom hitt's 1977 Olympia Traveller de Luxe typewriter. 2016-03-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1977 Olympia Traveller de Luxe Serial # 15-3946788 Purchased via Ebay, this typewriter is right in my wheelhouse. The 1977 Olympia Traveller de Luxe. I was in high school then, undoubtedly learning to type; a skill I dropped as soon as I left with my sheepskin. My only regret on this critter is, the paper support is broken off. Types beautifully, and I really like the design- very dissimilar to other portables of the time. I overpaid for this one, but I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for a similar machine with an intact paper support at a reasonable price.

Type ON! ~TH~

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
