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 wear to the silver chrome work on the carriage lever and the ends of the carriage. It has the Olympia logo in silver on the right side of the carriage and the manufacturers details on the back.

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.
