Lovely two tone blue all metal machine. Not to be confused with the taupe model from 1960 or so which I also own and about which little is written. (similar to the Heritage). Can have a tinny sound when typing like their close relatives the brothers, but this is easy to remedy by replacing the rubber bumpers under the ribbon cover and especially under the spacebar.

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
