A fabulous 1961 olive green coloured Olympia SM 4 De Luxe typewriter with dark green keys and forest green space bar and carriage knobs together with a smart silver chrome trim. This one has the standard Elite sized type or font that types with 12 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 ,service, adjusted and tested it and fitted a new 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 and discolouration in places .It has the Olympia logo on the front , "Made in Germany " and the London agents details on the back.
Group 1 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us we can supply you with plain black, plain purple , plain blue or two tone red/black .New ribbons cost $12.50 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
The typewriter 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 standard Olympia creme and green coloured carry case . The case is in a good overall condition with just a few marks and signs of wear .It has a clasp to close and a working handle which has some wear to the silver chromework but are both fully functional. 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 good typing touch.
