A lovely 1952 Olympia SM 2 typewriter in a relatively rare bergundy colour with black keys, space bar and carriage knobs. Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use.This one types in the slightly larger Olympia " Pica " size of type giving you 10 letters to the inch .
The typewriter has been professionally cleaned, serviced , adjusted and tested . It is in full working order and fitted with a new Group 1 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 just a few very minor marks to the paintwork and some small signs of discolouration in places . It has the Olympia logo in silver on the right side of the ribbon cover and the manufacturers details on the back.
It comes with a copy of the manual.
We can supply Group 1 typewriter ribbons when required from £4.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and Universal ribbons in a range of coloured options. A ribbon will last you a long time and 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 27 cms by 28 cms by 12 cms high and comes with its black coloured wooden carry case . The handle and clasp to close work well . The case has some small signs of wear and marks to the inside and outside, but it is all fully functional .
This SM2 is classed as a portable but is quite heavy and if you are wanting something to carry around a fair bit this may not be the best option , but if you want a well made and solid machine this is one to consider.
Delivery anywhere within the UK is included in the price.
