1976 Olympia SM8 Serial # 5065659 1976 Olympia SM8 typewriter, Serial # 5065659 Ryan Wright's 1976 Olympia SM8 typewriter. 2019-04-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan Wright: 1976 Olympia SM8 Serial # 5065659 I believe a hard to find Olympia with an Arabic Keyboard (Keyboard being the hard to find). The carriage moves from right to the left.
Needed a little cleaning, but overall in great shape. Have a case but it is damaged badly and I'm not sure it goes with the typewriter.

I make my home in Southern California.
My Typewriter manufacture dates currently range from 1883 to 1990.
