1957 Olympia SM2 Serial # 1061584 1957 Olympia SM2 typewriter, Serial # 1061584 Kristian Faulkenberry's 1957 Olympia SM2 typewriter. 2020-10-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kristian Faulkenberry: 1957 Olympia SM2 Serial # 1061584 Another surprise purchase from a couple in Frankfurt. I went there to purchase a Gossen Tippa but took this one home as well. This SM2 is very similar to many others on here, but was well cared for and kept in its clamshell case for most of its life, or so i believe. Very nice, if common, Pica #12 typeface, but the uppercase alignment is off slightly, so I will have to work that out.
Edit: passed on to a friend
