There is fractional wear to the lowercase "e" on the type head.

It has the Royal logo on the carriage as well as the Royal logo and manufacturers patients details on the front edge and on the back. The blue paint has some small marks and signs of wear and discolouration, mainly on the front bottom edges and on the top front corners as well as on the right hand side.

Its a very nice compact size being 27 cm wide x 28 cm deep x 11 cm high.

"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
