1969 Olympia SM8 Serial # 3778926 1969 Olympia SM8 typewriter, Serial # 3778926 Imre Deneer's 1969 Olympia SM8 typewriter. 2017-03-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Imre Deneer: 1969 Olympia SM8 Serial # 3778926 Olympia SM8.
Works great, but doesn't look that hot compared to SM4 or even SM7.
It's a little loud also, probably because there's no felt or anything to dampen the sound.
The typeface is a little smudged due to a brand-new silk ribbon that I installed. Machine itself was fairly clean, but could use some additional cleaning.
