1977 Olympia Report electric Serial # 7148285 1977 Olympia Report electric typewriter, Serial # 7148285 LaDonna Qualtieri's 1977 Olympia Report electric typewriter. 2022-11-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of LaDonna Qualtieri: 1977 Olympia Report electric Serial # 7148285 Arrived DOA so no type sample. It appears to be Elite and has the marking “1o” with a logo that looks like a pair of uppercase Rs mirrored spine to spine. The warranty card shows a sale date of February 13, 1982, so it probably sat on a shelf in the store from 1977-ish until sold. Any information about the typeface markings is welcome, as well as where I might find new belts.
