1951 Olympia SM2 Serial # 125050 1951 Olympia SM2 typewriter, Serial # 125050 Hubertus Schott's 1951 Olympia SM2 typewriter. 2018-08-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Hubertus Schott: 1951 Olympia SM2 Serial # 125050 An early Olympia SM2 coated with a wonderful bordeaux color. I spent a few hours changing the weird hard rubbers (which weren't hard anymore), removing the marks of Tipp-Ex orgies, cleaning and lubricating it. Now it works again and it looks quite nice, doesn't it?

Actually working with computers in my professional life I take the old mechanics as a compensation. I prefer machines manufactured before WWII, but I don't despise beautiful and good working typewriters from the fifties and sixties like e.g. the Olympia Splendid.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SM2 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SM2 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
