1956 Oliver Courier Serial # 56-19688 1956 Oliver Courier typewriter, Serial # 56-19688 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1956 Oliver Courier typewriter. 2018-04-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1956 Oliver Courier Serial # 56-19688 Made by what became of the U.S. Oliver typewriter company, the Courier is the more mainstream cousin, built in England. While some of the controls are peculiarly located, it is an enjoyable machine to use, and this model is fitted with Printype, the original typeface from the old Batwing. Sadly, the typebar cover logo has dropped off somewhere in the past.
