Typewriter, 1968 Olympia SM8

£325.00 GBP

 A lovely two tone off white and dark grey coloured Olympia SM 8 typewriter with light grey keys, space bar and carriage knobs. Olympia was a German brand of typewriter that was known for their great quality and ease of use and this one was made in West Germany in 1968. It has the Olympia logo on the front and the manufacturers details on the back. 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  ribbon so its all ready for you to start typing on. This one has the attractive Congress  Olympia "pica" sized typeface giving you 10 letters to the inch.

We can supply Universal typewriter ribbons from £7.95 each including postage. Available in plain black, red/black and 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. It measures 30 cm by 32 cm by 14 cm high. This one is in a good condition with just a few small marks to the metal casing mainly on the ribbon cover and at the right hand end of the carriage.

It comes with the standard Olympia two tone coloured carry case which is also in a good condition and has a sound handle. There are a few very minor marks on the inside and the outside of the carry case has some wear to the covering over the wooden case.

We include a copy of an instruction manual. All in all this is a good working Olympia in a lovely condition with an uncommon typeface.

"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
