A fabulous 1961 olive green coloured Olympia SM 4 De Luxe typewriter with dark green keys, carriage knobs and mid green space bar together with a smart silver chrome trim. This one has the slightly larger Olympia "pica" sized type face giving you 10 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 nice condition with just a few very small marks to the metal body and has the Olympia logo on the front 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 silver grey coloured wooden carry case. The case is in a good overall functional condition but does have some marks and signs of wear and discolouration in places, mainly on the inside. 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.
