1972 Olympia SM9 Serial # 4454679 1972 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 4454679 Daniel Burgoyne's 1972 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2022-07-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 1972 Olympia SM9 Serial # 4454679 This nicely kept typewriter was purchased in Terrebonne, Qu├ębec, in June 2021 but was originally sold in the Qu├ębec City area. Belonged to a lady who used it for personnal correspondance, who must have been a smoker as the machine smells of nicotine. Made in West Germany, equipped with a QWERTY French Canadian keyboard layout.

This machine, in orginal condition and perfect working order, came with the owner's manual and black hard case. The typeface is Elite No. 8 with 2.3 mm pitch. It types very well with a very positive action keyboard that is hard on first contact, before yielding with a positive, snappy action.

One of, if not, the best portable I have ever used.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have Canadian-French Qwerty keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
