1964 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2607553 1964 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 2607553 Tas Kyprianou's 1964 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2022-10-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1964 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2607553 A workhorse of a machine that I kind of regret selling on. It just got on with the job at hand effortlessly. It was more of a "make lots of notes on it" kind of machine than a "write poetry on it" machine if that makes ANY sense. Pretty sure I will own one again at some point. *

Also as an aside, I LOVED the M on this typeface. most machines I own have Ms with middle stems that touch the baseline. This one only reached down to the middle of the character. I liked that. . . . it's the little things.
* recently bought an SM7 which suits me a lot better.

The feet had perished and were sharp so I plonked some felt on there to protect my surfaces until I could source new feet.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - Bought an Everest Mod 90 after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
Notwithstanding the Linea 88 parts machine, my collection now consists of 29 typewriters.
My absolute favourite remains my 1939 Royal KMM. For me it's both the prettiest and the nicest to type on. It has "majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have collected such a beautiful bunch.
