1911 Oliver 5 Serial # 250748 1911 Oliver 5 typewriter, Serial # 250748 Mark Schrad's 1911 Oliver 5 typewriter. 2022-01-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1911 Oliver 5 Serial # 250748 I got this wide-carriage Oliver 5 from a fellow collector at Herman's typewriter jamboree in 2018. It needs a lot of work and is missing some parts, but it was cheap enough that I justified buying it to myself. [Edit: I did not get around to actually cleaning it up and returning it to functionality until January, 2022.]
