1968 Olympia SM8

Serial #3499116

One of my Exes-

This was an opportunity buy - a low price but with no case. I didn't know it was an SM8 until a friend pointed out the difference between the SM8 & SM9 - manual tab sets on the back of the machine - just like the classic SM3!

This machine didn't need any work - it was clean and set to go from the start. The typing action is superb. I wish all my script machines could type this well.

The grey keys are a tad unusual, as most SM9's have black keys. All in all this has just enough personality to make it a keeper.
