Working Vintage 1970s AEG Olympia Traveller de Luxe S Manual Typewriter – New Ribbon, Case, Manual
Working AEG Olympia Traveller de Luxe S vintage, manual portable typewriter in London (U.K.). After some research on the serial code, I concluded that it was manufactured in the 1970s. Despite being about fifty years old, this originally West German machine works well! The comfortable keys are responsive and a touch-control lever is fitted to allow for adjustment of response from keys to achieve satisfying typing. All the mechanisms work as intended and the keys function without sticking. This sturdy typewriter is fitted with a new black ribbon so you can type as soon as you get it, without any hassle. Also comes with the original case which has a comfortable handle, and the instructions manual.
The overall condition is very good. Minor signs of age and use are present.
The typewriter is relatively small and portable in size and therefore would be suitable if you are planning to travel. The retro Olympia would also be a starting point for a typist with little or no experience of using typewriters. Due to the style and the aesthetics of the AEG Olympia Traveller de Luxe S typewriter, it can be a great gift or can be used for display purposes like home decor and events such as exhibitions and weddings. It appeals to all generations.
