The Olympia SM typewriters are considered by some to be the perfect typewriter, very popular with writers due to their reliability and precision keyboard, these machines are true workhorses capable of typing for many hours at a time, superior robust German quality throughout.


This machine has been deep cleaned and serviced in our workshop, so it has a smooth and 'like new' typing feel, with a balanced touch. There are very few marks considering its age and no signs of corrosion evident when working on the machine, indicating that it has been stored in ideal environmental conditions throughout its life.


The carry case is in good condition, with some minor wear to zip.


Would suit typist of any level, very capable machine built for extensive work.
