Typewriter, 1971 Olympia Monica

$355.00 USD

 A lovely two tone dark charcoal grey and white coloured 1971 Olympia Monica typewriter with charcoal grey keys, space bar and carriage trim. Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use. It has the Olympia logo on the front and has the standard "Elite " sized  type face giving you 11 letters to the inch. It types very nicely and has been professionally cleaned, serviced, adjusted and tested. It is in full working order and is fitted with a new top quality American made Universal ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on.

We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from £6.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and a range of other colour options. 

This model has a metal casing and the whole front section lifts up to access the ribbon. The SM portables have a reputation as being "the writers " typewriter and this one certainly types very nicely. This Monica model is basically the same as an SM8 or SM9 but does not have a tabulator function or card guards. It does have a few very hard to see marks to the casing, mainly on the ribbon cover, but it is generally in a very good condition. It measures 30 cm by 32 cm by 14 cm high.

It comes with a black vinyl carry case which is also in a good condition. The closure and handle are both sound. There are some age related marks on both the inside and the outside and to the silver chrome on the handle and closure.

We include a copy of an instruction manual. A good working Olympia in a lovely condition.

"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
