"“Much as I like owning a Rolls-Royce, I could do without it. What I could not do without is a typewriter..." - John O'Hara


This olive green machine is a gorgeous visible typewriter, manufactured by The Oliver Company between 1915 and 1919. The most unique quality of this machine is the structure - all the keys and hammers are visible as the typing occurs. Upgrading from the previous model (the No. 8), this model featured a right and left shift and a two-color ribbon.

This specific typewriter isn't currently in working condition. A handful of the keys stick when they are pressed (they don't drop down far enough to hit the paper). However, to someone with a little of typewriter saavy and the desire to fix up this old model, we believe that everything is there that is necessary to become functional. The body has a normal bit of wear (fading on the logo, rust spots, etc) but is in good condition overall. The color is fantastic and vivid, and the overall look of the machine is eye catching and industrial. There is a place on top of the typewriter that is supposed to hav ea circle holder for a pencil - ours is missing the actual holder. Despite the condition issues - it's an Oliver Standard Visible No. 9 - which makes it both rare and extremely cool.

Whether you are looking for an exceptional restoration project or simple want an incredible looking piece of home decor, this typewriter is for you!
