The Typewriter Database 1970 Olympia SM9 Serial # 4103684 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Scott O: 1970 Olympia SM9 Serial # 4103684 I've always heard SM9's were excellent machines and jumped at the chance to buy this one when it came up for sale in my area. It needed a cleaning and some small adjustments, but now it's in superb shape.

The typing action is crisp and fast, with none of the heaviness of the early 1950s SM's. The layout is efficient for long typing projects with easy access to key functions.
