1978 Olympia SM9 Serial # 5528951 1978 Olympia SM9 typewriter, Serial # 5528951 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1978 Olympia SM9 typewriter. 2016-11-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1978 Olympia SM9 Serial # 5528951 SM9, that alone already inspires awe.

Well, maybe not that much but a SM9 is a better than good machine. It´ll never let you down, even if you use and abuse it. Or even if you neglect it, or you shout at it, or... You can do pretty much anything, the SM9 will endure it.

And this typewriter gives me a good perspective on how this model has evolved. I have a 1964 SM9 which is plainly outstanding´, and now I have a later one. Comparing them leaves you unable to choose between the two. Both are just plainly great. The ´64 SM9 is one of my favourites to work with and brings me great memories of 2014 Christmas, and this one is like a SG3 lil´ sister. Of course, they perform flawlessly.

A great deal for 24€, shipping included. Tremble before it, overpriced typewriters!

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
