1972 Olympia SM9

Serial #4269281

Found this at an antique market in Cobourg, Ontario, with the hard case. After I purchased it I found a 1920s typing instructional book, written for Canadians, tucked inside, an odd mix with a 1970s German typewriter. It's quite plain but it types really well.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
