1950 Olympia SM1 Serial # 49209 1950 Olympia SM1 typewriter, Serial # 49209 paul cormier's 1950 Olympia SM1 typewriter. 2017-12-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of paul cormier: 1950 Olympia SM1 Serial # 49209 I'm guessing it's an SM1 from the serial number. And the manufacture date 1950. But it has a wire paper prop of earlier models, round keys only black.

I found it in a charity shop coated with nicotine stains. Ack. But thanks to encouragement from Scott at the Filthy Platen, I cleaned it up some. It works great. Dutch keyboard.

I'm not much of a collector, just registering a couple old typewriters found in charity shops
