1962 Olympia SM7 Serial # 2182650 1962 Olympia SM7 typewriter, Serial # 2182650 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1962 Olympia SM7 typewriter. 2014-07-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1962 Olympia SM7 Serial # 2182650 Is there anything left to be said about the later Olympia SM models? Pure workhorses - real tools for real writers. How about that?

Then there's the line space lever. Maybe you have to shave with a straight edge like I do to think this way, but it really does look like the lever's designer was preoccupied with the grooming tool.

This machine was actually a prize won by its first owner through a contest run by an office supply store. The store is still exists, I'm not sure the same can be said about the lucky winner. (see photo)
