Typewriter, 1958 Olympia SM 4

$975.00 AUD

A lovely 1958 olive green coloured Olympia SM 4 De Luxe typewriter with dark green keys, carriage knobs and 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 professional clean, 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, mainly on the ribbon cover and at the mainframe at each side below the carriage. it has the Olympia logo on the front and the selling agents details on the back and side.

Universal 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. You can either rewind onto the spools already in the machine or drop in the new ribbon on plastic spools.

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 creme and green 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 both on the inside and the outside and on the handle metal fittings. 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 SM4 with a lovely snappy typing touch.

"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
