1974 Olympia Monica Serial # 4638501 1974 Olympia Monica typewriter, Serial # 4638501 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1974 Olympia Monica typewriter. 2014-08-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1974 Olympia Monica Serial # 4638501 The poor man's SM9.

The exotically named Monica might lack the frills of a tabulator or a touch selector - features that were included on the Monica de Luxe - but it's still a solid typer and performs admirably under the duress of sustained production.

The Saturn White and Slate Grey machine was manufactured in "Western Germany" as an export model for the Canadian market as its typeface is specific to the needs of French-Canadian typists.
