1965 Olympia SM9 #2861676


This is the one that started it all. I got this SM-9 from my mother who got it from a garage sale back in the 70's. She used it all throughout middle and high school along with a Royal 200. It wasn't until September 2014 that I started paying attention to it and my collection started.

I love these Olympias. The touch is very solid and sure and you can tell it was meant for serious writing. For me, these will always be the best.

Typeface Specimen:


Hunter: Zachary Greene (ZGMB)

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 19

16 with 20+ typewriters in a small town in New Jersey. I like Royals and Underwoods and really anything you throw me.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SM9 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SM9 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
