I just got a bid cancellation notice from eBay for this rare Oliver No. 1 typewriter. It’s not often that a “blog-worthy” auction arises, and, as Richard Polt noted, this would have been fun to watch in the final seconds. The last time I checked, bidding topped $6,000.
The serial number on the machine was listed as 284.
