London Typewriters are delighted to present for sale a fully working Olympia SM5 typewriter, which was made in the 1960s, in Germany.

What makes this typewriter stand out, is the solid and enjoyable key action when typing.

The wide carriage allows the typist to not only type in portrait format, but also in landscape format. It could take a slightly wider paper than A4 such as foolscap.

Additionally, the typewriter is designed for bilingual typing, in English and German.

If you need to type in columns or are typing lists, statements, indented paragraphs, then there is a tabulator key on the right.

The Olympia SM5 works very well and the keys type smoothly. There is a new black ribbon installed, so the machine can be used immediately upon arrival. It comes with the case which has a comfortable handle.

The overall condition is very good. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note that the case has been repainted.

The Olympia SM5 is suitable for typing long projects and would be a reliable machine for many, many years of work. It would suit writers or typists in analytical professions.
