Working 1978 Olympia Monica de Luxe Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case – Made in UK
The Olympia Monica de Luxe model originated in Western Germany. However, it is surprising and rare that this particular machine was made in 1978, in the UK.
Compared to previous Olympia models, the Olympia Monica de Luxe evolved through some transformation, such as the light and extremely comfortable keys, a hard plastic body and wide lever knobs for better grip.
The Olympia Monica de Luxe works very well. A new black ribbon is installed and the typist can start typing straight after the machine is delivered. It comes with an original dark grey case.
Overall condition is very good. The Olympia Monica de Luxe operates very well. Minor signs of age and use are present. Please note that the primary colour of the top part of the typewriter was white. However, as it was most likely exposed to the sunlight, the typewriter has some yellowing – please refer to photos. Also, the paper support is missing.
The Olympia Monica de Luxe typewriter is located in London (U.K.).
