197X* Olympia SGE3 Serial # 47-368441 197X* Olympia SGE3 typewriter, Serial # 47-368441 Mike Clemens's 197X* Olympia SGE3 typewriter. 2015-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Clemens: 197X* Olympia SGE3 Serial # 47-368441 Spotted in the wild, an "Olympia International" desktop machine, electric powered. Looks like a version of the SG3 with the late 1960s-1970s body style. White body panel comes off as a unit and was loose -- of course I snapped it down into place. Contains both a cloth and carbon ribbon transport system inside. Arabic(?) keyboard and branding on the front.

Photos:

Absolutely terrible phone photo of the left-hand side of the keyboard. Looks like a plus/multiply key in the "Z" position in the bottom row, next to the shift key.
