Made in 1978
With Carry-Case and Facsimile Instruction Book
The German-made Olympia typewriter has a reputation as one of the best makes available. The SM-series heavy-duty portables have a design heritage dating back to 1950. When this machine was made, it was one of tha last - nearing the end of production. Designed for serious users like professional writers and small businesses, the SM9 was the luxury model in the range. It has all of the features that you would expect to find on a full-size office typewriter, including an infinitely-settable tabulator featuring a 'total tab. clear' lever on the carriage. This machine has a delightful (and adjustable) keyboard 'touch' and will keep up with the most expert typist. Less tiring to use than its carriage-shifted predecessors, the segment-shifted SM9 is a joy to work with.
The SM9 features a 44-character keyboard, tabulator, and a platen freehead (handy for lining up pre-printed forms precisely). It comes in an appropriately heavy-duty plastic carry case.
This particular machine appears to have had only private use and is therefore in near-new condition. If you are a serious user looking for a quality product with built-in reliability - this is the typewriter to have.
