1966 Olympia SM8

Serial #3183294

Purchased on Ebay, arrived in very good condition on February 12, 2015. The typing sample shown here is the original ribbon. I like the key response on this. I'm not wild about the hinged cover. It comes up like the hood of a car, remaining attached to the machine. So, like working on a car, you have to stick your head in with a flashlight to get any real work done. Overall, very pleased with this one.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
