199x Olympia Compact i Serial # 66-0867640 199x Olympia Compact i typewriter, Serial # 66-0867640 Uwe Wachtendorf's 199x Olympia Compact i typewriter. 2017-09-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 199x Olympia Compact i Serial # 66-0867640 The 'i' in the model name denotes 'interface', or in other words, the ability of this typewriter to be connected to a PC and used as a printer.

I really like using these machines, and were it not for the proprietary carbon ribbon cartridge it requires, would use it a lot more often.
