Working 1950’s Olympia SM2 Manual Typewriter – Black – New Ribbon, Case – Made in Western Germany
Fully working Olympia SM2 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. Regardless of such old age, the German made machine works well! The comfortable keys are responsive and it provides customisable functions for comfortable typing. The backspace, carriage return lever, the bell, the shift keys, 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 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 good. It types well and it is generally clean. Minor cosmetic signs of use and age are present on the typewriter and case. Please note the carriage lock (essential during transportation to prevent the carriage from damage) is missing.
The black 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 SM2 typewriter, it can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
