1961 Olympia SM7 Serial # 1966995 1961 Olympia SM7 typewriter, Serial # 1966995 Paul Moore's 1961 Olympia SM7 typewriter. 2020-03-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Moore: 1961 Olympia SM7 Serial # 1966995 Fount this out in Phoenix, AZ. The clasp holding the linkage together on the @ key had come off on one side so I talked the seller down. It took me about an hour as I had never tried to reconnect the linkage before, but I finally got it. Elite typeface with a carriage shift, but I don't think it's as heavy as on our SM5 plus there's an adjustment for it. I really love typing on our Olympia typewriters they are true workhorses.
