SORRY, SOLD! 1961 Olympia SM4 Typewriter
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1961 Olympia SM4 Typewriter


    We are pleased to offer this fine OLYMPIA SM4 DeLuxe typewriter manufactured in 1961. It 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. If you are looking for an extraordinary typewriter that works extraordinarily well, you need look no further.

    This is an extraordinary typewriter that was produced during the last year of production of the SM4 model-line. With a dove-gray body and deepest-green keys, 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.

    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.

    Like all of our typewriters this is a fully-working typewriter. It comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal attached to the typewriter which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one year warranty. We guarantee safe delivery and provide careful and attentive after-purchase advice and assistance from the date of purchase to the end of eternity to ensure your full satisfaction. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future. The typewriter comes with a one year warranty.

    The keyboard is standard US/UK (QWERTY), and the typeface is Olympia's Elite (11 c.p.i.). The keyboard has the all-important "@" key. There is a new ribbon so you can start typing immediately.

    Mechanically this typewriter is in top working condition. Everything works as it should and as originally designed. The rubber on the platen roller, as stated, is new and the rubber on the paper feed rollers is in excellent condition and appropriately soft.
