198X Olympia (Nakajima) Olympiette S10 Serial # 1004642 198X Olympia (Nakajima) Olympiette S10 typewriter, Serial # 1004642 Mary Echevarria's 198X Olympia (Nakajima) Olympiette S10 typewriter. 2016-02-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mary Echevarria: 198X Olympia (Nakajima) Olympiette S10 Serial # 1004642 Made in Japan.

I cleaned this typewriter for a local community arts space.

Plastic shell - very light.

The typewriter's plastic spooling spindles were both broken. I made substitutes from paper clips.

Typewriter has an "Automatic" spacing key (which is very fun).

The serial number is located under the carriage on the right, stamped on frame.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
