Oliver, 1914, N°5, USA
The Oliver Typewriter Company was an American typewriter manufacturer, founded by Thomas Oliver in 1895.
Although production in the USA ended in 1928, the British Oliver Typewriter Mfg Co would continue production of the downstroke until after World War II.
The Oliver Typewriter was one of the first “visible print” typewriters, meaning text was visible to the typist as it was entered.
Oliver typewriters were marketed heavily for home use. Oliver produced more than one million machines between 1895 and 1928 and licensed its designs to several international firms.
The Olive-green color is typical for the Oliver typewriter
Model n.5, produced between 1907 and 1914, is a “down strike” typewriter, meaning that the writing is visible.
It costed about 100 dollars.
