SM9, that alone already inspires awe.
Well, maybe not that much but a SM9 is a better than good machine. ItÂ´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 outstandingÂ´, and now I have a later one. Comparing them leaves you unable to choose between the two. Both are just plainly great. The Â´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 lilÂ´ sister. Of course, they perform flawlessly.
A great deal for 24â¬, shipping included. Tremble before it, overpriced typewriters!

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´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.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SM9 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SM9 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
