I got this from my grandmother's neighbor along with an S-C 2200.
When I got it it was loaded with dust and it did not work too well. After cleaning, it is a nice machine overall.
Still needs a little adjusting here and there, but not bad.
Unfortunately, the return spring on the backspace (which also controls the escapement throwout) was weak so I had to 'tie it up' so I could actually use the machine, so I cannot use the backspace.
Pictures and type sample to follow.
Left the collection on 1/12/18.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SM7 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SM7 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
