197X Sears Achiever Serial # 7722375 197X Sears Achiever typewriter, Serial # 7722375 Tami Sutcliffe's 197X Sears Achiever typewriter. 2019-03-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tami Sutcliffe: 197X Sears Achiever Serial # 7722375 This is a hybrid: an Olivetti/Underwood (made in Spain) sold by Sears under the "Achiever" name. It is an Underwood 319 body on Olivetti mechanicals, with an "Achiever" plate. A sturdy bright blue plastic machine which works quietly and does not slide off the desk, and includes a modest bell and a brilliant red ribbon. A nice clean typer in a clever clam shell case. Let's just call it "Achiever" and not quibble over the family history, ok?
