Typewriter, 1956 Olympia SM3

$431.00 USD

 A lovely olive green coloured Olympia SM3 typewriter with dark green keys and space bar and carriage knobs and silver chrome trim. Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use and this one and was made in West Germany in 1956. It has the Olympia logo on the front and the manufactures details on the back. This one has the standard Olympia "elite" size type face giving you 11 letters to the inch.

This typewriter has been professionally serviced, cleaned, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and fitted with a new top quality American made Universal  ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal TW38 typewriter ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. These can be dropped in or you can rewind the new ribbon onto the metal spools in the typewriter.

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 nice typer then this is one to consider. There is some very slight wear to the paintwork mainly on the back top section of the carriage, just to the left of the logo and at the front left corner and the carriage lock has been removed.

It has a carry case which is in a good functional condition with just some general marks and discolouration in places on both the inside and the outside and some wear and  discolouration to the metal fixings on the handle. As some stage it has been re painted.

This is a nice Olympia SM3 typewriter in a good working condition. We also include a photo copy of an original instruction manual.

"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
