1903 Oliver 3 Serial # 45398 1903 Oliver 3 typewriter, Serial # 45398 Mark Schrad's 1903 Oliver 3 typewriter. 2021-01-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1903 Oliver 3 Serial # 45398 I got this 1903 Oliver 3 in the spring of 2016 in Philadelphia, and it took me two years to get around to disassembling and fixing it up. According to the previous owner, it was used in a Philadelphia dentist's office, and then later was used as a door stop... outside. It took quite a while, but I just barely returned it to functionality, as can be seen from the typeface specimen, even in lieu of an F key.
