1950’s Working Olympia SM5 – New Ribbon & Original Case – Beige – Made In Western Germany
Fully working Olympia SM5 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced during the late 1950’s or early 1960’s. Regardless of such old age, the German made machine works very well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, carriage lock, margin setters, ribbon selector (for the colour change), the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This sturdy Olympia SM5 typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original wooden case which has a comfortable handle.
The overall condition is excellent. It types well and it is generally clean. Minor cosmetic signs of use and age are present.
The beige retro typewriter would be ideal for writers and authors, especially in the creative field. It will also be a unique gift. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the Olympia SM5 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
