1964 Olympia SM5 Serial # 2422904 1964 Olympia SM5 typewriter, Serial # 2422904 Rachel Spence's 1964 Olympia SM5 typewriter. 2023-04-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rachel Spence: 1964 Olympia SM5 Serial # 2422904 This is one of the dirtiest and neglected Olympias I've come across. The original owner was definitely a heavy smoker, as there was nicotine staining all over the machine and the case has permanent staining. I was able to get most of the staining off the typewriter, but the keys are consistently more yellow than they would otherwise be.
