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 restored in our workshop, we noted a few superficial signs of surface corrosion to some metal components, but this is only cosmetic, the typewriter is mechanically sound and has restored beautifully, very smooth touch to this Olympia.


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