1965 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2881875 1965 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 2881875 Michael Hoehne's 1965 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2017-07-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1965 Olympia SM9 Serial # 2881875 Typed on a slip of paper taped to the inside of the case: “PLEASE SAVE THIS RECEIPT--June 25, 1966 $119.28 . Man, they had good Scotch tape back then! Script font at 11 cpi.

At one of those charity fundraiser yard sales. It was not there the previous day, but I happened to be going past and thought “What the heck. Why not check again?  and a worker called out across the yard, “Hey! Typewriter Man! Somebody dropped these off this morning...  The other being an electronic one without a manual.

Script, eh? Ribbon's a little wonky, though.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
