1963 Olympia SM7 Serial # 2347987 1963 Olympia SM7 typewriter, Serial # 2347987 Steven Blake's 1963 Olympia SM7 typewriter. 2023-09-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Blake: 1963 Olympia SM7 Serial # 2347987 My second SM7. Why, you ask? The lovely blue shell of course. This one left the Olympia factory sometime in 1963, and it was a bit dirtier and showed more signs of use than my first, but after a thorough cleaning, a coat of automotive wax, new feet (courtesy of an eBay seller), plus replacement rubber bushings all the way around, it types (and looks) like its younger (and spiffier!) self. The Senatorial typeface is always easy on the eyes too.
