A fabulous 1958 olive green coloured Olympia SM 4 De Luxe typewriter with dark green keys, space bar and carriage knobs together with a smart silver chrome trim. This one has the standard Olympia "elite" sized type face giving you 11 letters to the inch.
Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use. It is in full working order and we have given it a clean, professional service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on. The SM 4 's are all metal and beautifully engineered machines giving you a great typing performance. The main difference between the SM3 and SM4 is the tab settings are placed next to the space bar at each end. This one is in a very nice condition with just a few very small marks, it has the Olympia logo on the front, "Made in Germany " and the selling agents details on the back.
Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us we when required and are available in plain black, two tone red/black and a range of other colour options. New ribbons are priced from $13.90 including postage.
The typewriter measures 30 cm by 30 cm by 13 cm high and although classed as a portable this is quite a heavy machine and if you are after something to carry around this may not be the best option, but if you want something sturdy, robust and a great typer then this is one to consider.
It comes with a standard Olympia wooden carry case with two tone leatherette covering. The case is in a good overall functional condition but does have some marks and signs of wear in places. It has a clasp to close and a working handle and this one has a vintage Caledonian Airways sticker at the front. The typewriter can be clipped onto the base. We include a photo copy of an original instruction booklet.
All in all this is a very collectable Olympia SM 4 with a lovely snappy typing touch.
