1961 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1793467 1961 Olympia SM4 typewriter, Serial # 1793467 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1961 Olympia SM4 typewriter. 2022-12-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1961 Olympia SM4 Serial # 1793467 Olympia SM4, custom painted by Gerren HotRod Typewriter Co. The serial number exceeds what is listed as belonging to SM4s and goes into the number range of when the SM7 was started in construction. Machine came from the regions of Spokane but still had a Danish/Norwegian keyboard and a Modern Congress typeface. I bought it from Gerren and had it shipped back to the mother country! Finally, it is home, and in a hot as hell coat.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
