This Olympia typewriter belonged to a TV or Radio industry professional around Duluth, MN in it’s former life. Their name is displayed on the top of the case in two small strips of label maker tape. Neglected to say the least – we have have restored this beautiful blue Olympia SF portable typewriter to working order. A few parts were broken and mold permeated the mechanism. We recommend storing this typewriter with baking soda to prevent moisture/smell build up during storage.
The case is in rough shape and we have cleaned it as best we can with non-toxic and biodegradable citrus based products. Please take this into account. The only major damage to the typewriter is surface wear to the space-bar coating – which we have glued back down. Other that that it shows normal vintage wear and is a great functional + collectible typewriter!
Included with every typewriter purchase is one FREE brand new black typewriter ribbon, because we want you typing away in no time! Please check our shop if you need typewriter ribbons! We have Blue, Purple, Green and Brown typewriter ribbons available.
Your typewriter has been personally serviced, cleaned and tested by us and is in working order as described. See photos for exact condition details. We carefully ship all our typewriters with Tracking and Insurance.
