1960 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1620369 1960 Olympia SM4 typewriter, Serial # 1620369 Emily Tillman's 1960 Olympia SM4 typewriter. 2021-04-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Emily Tillman: 1960 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1620369 The typeface is my favorite part of this Olympia SM4. The machine was found at an estate sale and, of course, has some issues. The carriage lock does not function properly. Also, the space bar is so tight up against the frame that it's getting scraped up. It often gets stuck down and thereby impedes type action of other keys.

Bitten by typewriter bug during childhood. Life-long condition. No cure. Only symptom management. Happy to be here.
