Found at an estate sale in May 2018, grimy but perfectly functional. When I opened it up to clean it, a gumball-machine toy--a little clown face inside a plastic ball with hollows in the eyes and mouth so you could roll three tiny ball bearings into them--fell out and was promptly eaten by my puppy.
Sold in January 2019.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!
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.
