1969 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3682721 1969 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 3682721 Alexander Pearson's 1969 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2022-01-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alexander Pearson: 1969 Olympia SM9 Serial # 3682721 High-quality typewriter that proves superior to the SM3/4 thanks to its segment (basket) shift. This is one of the last SM9s manufactured with the old stylized Olympia logo, which looks far classier than the later block capitals OLYMPIA logo. Like all Olympias, the touch is a bit heavy, but if you're like me and don't mind that, it's a pleasure to type with. It's technically still a portable, but the weight (which isn't helped by the extended carriage) makes it feel more like a light standard than a true portable.
