Clearly the serial nums are off in the DB as it is way higher. May be later than 62. Curious about the sticker on the ribbon cover. Perhaps it says Erika underneath? But I'm not peeling it off .

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Optima Super on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Optima Serial Number page and the Optima Super By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
