1968 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3483135 1968 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 3483135 Marina Garrison's 1968 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2022-03-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Marina Garrison: 1968 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3483135 Olympia SM9 De Luxe thrifted from Value Village for $20 CDN. This typewriter came with a black case that appears to be original as it refers to "typewriter" on a label inside. I was very excited to get this home as my other SM9 is wide carriage and pica, this is regular and the ruler went up to 92 so I assumed it would be elite. However it turned out to be Senatorial or "robot" typeface.
