Antique Oliver No. 5 Typewriter 1913
Serial 339657
Maker Marked

Back in its day, this machine would have sold for something in the $100 range, which translates to roughly $1,500-2,000 in today’s money. It was a huge investment on par with our own high-end computers. As such, many people paid in installment plans, with Oliver repossessing any typewriters owned by deadbeat customers.

Condition:
Complete, however service is required, cleaning and lubricating as well as a new ribbon will be needed to make this functional.
