A lovely 1954 green coloured, crinkle finish Olympia SM 2 typewriter with dark green keys , shift keys and carriage knobs and a smart silver chrome trim around the edge of the ribbon cover.
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 ,service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on. The SM 2's are all metal and beautifully engineered machines giving you a great typing performance. This one is in a nice condition with slight flattening to the crinkle finish where the left side of the ribbon cover has been rubbed over the years. It has the Olympia logo on the front , "Made in Germany " on the back .
GR1 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . They generally cost around $10 including postage . However a ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea, in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months
It measures 30 cms by 30 cms by 13 cms 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 strong grey silver coloured case with grey interior . The case is in a good functional condition but shows a few marks and signs of wear mainly on the outside .It has a clasp to close and a working handle . 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 3 with a lovely typing touch and is all ready for you to start typing that book !
Delivery anywhere within Australia is included in the price.
