1949 Olympia SM1 Serial # 16486 1949 Olympia SM1 typewriter, Serial # 16486 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1949 Olympia SM1 typewriter. 2014-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1949 Olympia SM1 Serial # 16486 No introduction needed, the first step - although an evolutionary rather than revolutionary one - by Olympia toward producing some of the best portable typewriters ever made.

This first production year model is missing a somewhat needed part. No matter, it's something I'll get around to fabricating when I've got nothing better to do. Yeah, I'm going to let you figure it out. ;-)
