Rare Script Olympia SM9

$0.00 AUD

A lovely two tone white and dark grey coloured Olympia SM9 typewriter with grey keys and space bar. Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use and this one was made in West Germany in 1968. It has the Olympia logo on the front and the manufacturers details on the back and the keyset tabulator next to the spacebar which is the main difference between the SM9 and the SM8. It types very nicely and has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested and a new ribbon fitted. It is in full working order and this one has the very rare script type face in an "elite" size giving you 11 letters to the inch.

We can supply top quality American made Universal typewriter ribbons from $13.90 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. 

This model has a metal casing and the whole front section lifts up to access the ribbon. The SM portables have a reputation as being "the writers " typewriter and this one certainly types very well and is in a good condition. The white ribbon cover section has been repainted. There are some marks and signs of wear on the grey body work mainly at the back corners. It measures 30 cm by 32 cm by 14 cm high and although classed as a portable is quite heavy. If you are wanting something to carry around a fair bit this may not be the best option, but if you are after a good solid and well made typer this is certainly one to consider.

It comes with a standard Olympia black hard vinyl  carry case which is also in a good functional condition with just some small marks and signs of wear. The handle and latch to close work well.

We include a copy of an instruction manual. This is a very sought after Olympia model with the rare script type face.

"My Olivetti arrived a couple days ago. Got a chance to test it out and it works like a dream (you wouldn’t guess it was nearly half a century old). Thank you for including the original metal spools, it adds a great touch to the machine. Looking forward to adding another typewriter to the collection sometime soon..." - Jake
