SORRY, SOLD! 1958 Olympia SM4 Typewriter
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1958 Olympia SM4 Typewriter


    We are pleased to offer this near mint condition OLYMPIA SM4 DeLuxe typewriter manufactured in 1958. It has the very handsome and desirable Congress typeface. This Olympia is in superb condition in every way and has been professionally serviced, aligned and adjusted. The platen roller has been refurbished with new rubber by one of the oldest factories in Europe. It has a new "Acme Signature" blue ribbon with two original metal ribbon spools and comes with a hard case.

    This is an extraordinary typewriter that was produced during the first year of production of the SM4 model-line. It has an elegant and profound presence on your desk or in your office. This typewriter is truly a "statement" on the desk of any serious screenwriter, journalist, novelist or even the occasional letter-writer. It is an extraordinary writing instrument for an extraordinary person.

    Acme typewriters have been the choice of discerning collectors and writers more than 1,000 times since we began selling online in 2016. They are fully guaranteed to work and fully guaranteed to arrive damage-free. Most shipments to the US arrive in 3 days--often much faster than most domestic shipments within the US. Acme typewriters are carefully selected, beautifully restored and come with a one-year mechanical warranty and lifetime customer-service. Each comes with a lead seal, attached to the body, identifying it as a fully-restored Acme typewriter. Many new dealers strive to imitate us--none succeed. 

    For many, the Olympia SM4 is considered to be the "King of the Typewriters". It is one of the most well-engineered, solid, durable and usable typewriter models ever manufactured. The SM series of typewriters from the Olympia factories in Germany are considered by many to be the "gold-standard" of what a modern portable typewriter should be. The SM4 is probably the pinnacle of that technical excellence and engineering brilliance among the SM models. It is perfect for a fast typer, or a slower one.

    The keyboard is original QWERTY, and the typeface is Olympia's CongressPica (10 c.p.i.). 

    Comes with the original case which is in excellent condition. On the outside of the case there are minor signs of wear. The interior has minor marks where the typewriter feet have sat for decades and some light discolouration. The original Olympia branded cleaning brush is included. 

    This superb example of an OLYMPIA SM4 will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to preserve its condition and beauty. We have a lot of experience in shipping typewriters and have an excellent track record for proper packing and safe delivery. It will be fully insured for shipment.

    If you have any questions or wish to see more photos, please don't hesitate to contact us.
