1967 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3177435 1967 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 3177435 Mark Petersen's 1967 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2013-11-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1967 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3177435 A truly great Goodwill find from Northern Virginia a mint condition SM-9 for $25. I actually don't love Olympias as much as many other typists do, but this is the best one I have ever used and unlike my SM-7 I will probably never sell it. The action is extremely light and it comes with pretty comprehensive features. This machine has an inscription in felt-tip marker inside the ribbon cover presumably marking the time of sale.
