1965 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2842152 1965 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 2842152 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1965 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2015-02-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1965 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2842152 This one is the only redeeming item I got from a seller I hate with all my soul.

It´s a superb typewriter, with all you can expect from the Olympias: reliability, stability, good speed... Great machinery, and in surprisingly good condition taking into account where it came from: an "antiques dealer" selling crippled merchandise without even the slightest idea on what he´s selling.

But back to the typewriter itself, if I had to complain about something it would be the same as with the Facits: it works so well it can get boring at times. But I´d reccomend one of these to anyone. This machine will never let you down.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
