1967 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3054055 1967 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 3054055 Melissa Favara's 1967 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2015-08-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Melissa Favara: 1967 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3054055 I am not sure on the model--I believe it is an SM based on its similarity to other machines so identified, but I'm not sure on the number--if anyone knows, I'd love help with the ID. This machine is a workhorse and types well, but can be a little sticky--a good cleaning will help. I like the turquoise accents and the easy action.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
