1960 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1670995 1960 Olympia SM4 typewriter, Serial # 1670995 Mark Schrad's 1960 Olympia SM4 typewriter. 2022-12-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1960 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1670995 Such a nice SM-4! I got it from a fellow collector in Royersford, PA in December of 2022. Bonus: it is in an unusual, light arctic blue (hard to get the lighting on it quite right). Double bonus: it has a dealer tag from Bob DeBarth's shop in nearby Lansadale, where Bob repaired typewriters for 76 years-- from 1946 when he came home from WWII to his passing in November 2021.
