My two Olympia SM-9 portable typewriters

One from 1967, bought by my parents for my sister and I to use for school work. The other I bought at an antique mart last week for $21.  The new, old SM-9 seems to be from 1971.

left the new kid circa 1971 model, right the family original from I think 1967

De Luxe only on the 1967(?) version

I put a fresh ribbon in the 1971 version and it works well.
