Working 1956 Optima Elite 3 Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case, Manual – Superb Condition – Made in Germany


London Typewriters are delighted to present for sale a beautifully preserved Optima Elite 3 portable typewriter.

This typewriter was manufactured in 1956, in Erfurt, Germany.

The streamlined typewriter works very well. The keys are exceptionally light and comfortable when typing as a result of precise German typewriter engineering. All of the mechanisms work as intended and the chroming on the levers and details is well preserved.

The Optima Elite 3 is equipped with all standard features: three line spacing options, fractional line spacer, ribbon colour switch for black/red ribbon, margin release, paper support, etc.

This typewriter would be convenient for typing listings and in columns as there is a tab key next to the spacebar.

It comes with a solid protective case, which has a comfortable handle. There is a new black ribbon installed and the typewriter is ready for immediate use.

Overall condition is superb. The typewriter operates very well. Only few, minor signs of age and use are present as the typewriter has been well looked after.

The robust and heavy-duty Optima Elite 3 would be suitable for writers, journalists or students typing long projects. This would also be an eye-catching centrepiece at any event or a memorable present for any occasion.
