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.  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 and a pop-up extendable paper rest.  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 carry case.

This particular machine has had some use since 1965, and is showing slight signs of wear.  As a result, it has been beautifully 'run in' and is therefore really comfortable to use.  It is set up to provide many more years of reliable service.  Ribbons for this model are still readily available.  If you are a serious user looking for a quality product with built-in reliability - this is the typewriter to have.
