Was surprised to see this was made in Mexico. Sturdy build, clear triangular paper support, snazzy red carriage removal levers inside rather than the cheaper grey ones from my later model. Gummy but still types like a charm - will love to use this once I've cleaned it up! Not exactly what I'd call portable. Ace felt underpad makes it almost quiet. Currently decked out with flight instrument magnets, I renamed this "Hog" in honor of the venerable A-10 Thunderbolt II aka Warthog. It is to the typer world what the hog is to combat aircraft. Love it!

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.
From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
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.
