1960’s Working Olympia Splendid 66 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Soft Case – Made in Western Germany – Burgundy
Working Olympia Splendid 66 vintage, manual portable typewriter in London, UK. After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was produced in the 1970’s. Regardless of such old age, the Olympia typing 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, the carriage release lever, the paper guide and the paper release lever all work as intended. This German made typewriter is fitted with a new ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it and without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle.
Please note that the Olympia was spray painted burgundy and hence this colour is not the original.
The overall condition is excellent. All of the keys work without sticking. Minor signs of use and age are present. Please note that there is no original case and a soft case has been provided instead.
The retro Olympia 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 Splendid 66 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
