1960s Olympia SM8

Serial #XXXX

Designed for hardcore typing, very well engineered German machine. A rather "safe" body design, not bad, but not very interesting. The grey-green keys against white color scheme is much more attractive than the more common white-on-white. Mine was in mint condition, looked practically new, but had to sell it to make room for an Olivetti. Nuff said.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
