A fabulous 1960 olive green coloured Olympia SM 4 De Luxe typewriter with dark green keys mid green space bar and carriage knobs together with a smart silver chrome trim. This one has the slightly larger "pica" sized type face or that types with 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 clean, professional 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 very nice condition with just a few very small marks and discolouration in places mainly on the body at the front left hand side. This one was made for the US market and has a $ sign key ( no £ sign key ), it has the Olympia logo on the front, "Made in Germany " and the New York original selling agents details on the back.
Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from us we can supply you with plain black, two tone red/black and a range of other colour options. New ribbons are priced from £6.95 including postage.
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 wooden carry case. The case is in a good overall functional condition but does have some marks and signs of wear and has been re painted 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 4 with a lovely snappy typing touch.
Delivery anywhere within the UK is included in the price.
