1966 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3033642 1966 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 3033642 Sergei Viktorovich's 1966 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2021-04-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1966 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3033642 I bought this typewriter for 500 rubles (about 6.5 dollars). The body was slightly rusty, but everything inside was preserved at the proper level. Initially, I bought it for subsequent resale, but I just felt that this deal would come out "sideways" to me, and there would necessarily be some catch)
This catch was the italic font. For the first time I see a typewriter with such font (not counting my Stower-4, which I have already converted to Cyrillic). As far as I know, typewriters with italics are not often to found, and even more so in Russia (typewriters with Cyrillic italics were not produced).
In general, now the Olympia is repainted in light blue, is placed in a universal case from the early Erika-40 and feels quite well)
