Sorry, Sold. 1964 Olympia SM5 Typewriter
  • Sorry, Sold. 1964 Olympia SM5 Typewriter


    Imagine typing with this typewriter on your terrace overlooking the garden. This is an excellent example of a 1964 OLYMPIA SM5 typewriter, in Eggshell-White colour with Green accents. It is in fine condition in every way. The platen has new rubber to give you many years of typing pleasure. It has been fully serviced, aligned and adjusted.  It has a new ribbon and is ready for some serious typing. The colour on this SM5 is a wonderful eggshell-white with green shift keys and platen roller knobs. It is a very handsome combination.

    To "share the joy" of the opening of our new store in Holland, we'll ship this to you via UPS Air Express for free, with delivery in 2-3 days! And please forgive the poor photography as we prepare our new photo studio.

    For many, the Olympia SM model line represents the height of mid-century typewriter design. The SM model typewriters are some of the most well-engineered, solid, durable and usable desktop typewriter models ever manufactured. It is perfect for a fast typer, or a slower one. The keyboard is standard US/UK (QWERTY), and the typeface is Olympia's Elite (11 c.p.i.). This is an elegant typeface. It comes with a new bi-colour ribbon so that you can start typing immediately.

    With an ACME Typewriter, you know you are getting a fully-working--as original--typewriter. The only thing that you have to do is sit down, put paper on the roller and start typing. It comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal attached to the typewriter. This seal permanently identifies this typewriter as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. 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 in 2023 by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future. And the fact that this has a new platen adds even more value.

    This typewriter, as mentioned, has a new platen and the rubber feet are solid and soft, gripping the desktop well.  It is in lovely condition inside and out and will serve you well for typing anything from a short poem to a long novel.

    A hard carrying case can be ordered with this typewriter. 

    The SM series of typewriters from the Olympia factories in Germany are considered by many to be the "gold-standard" of what a modern desktop typewriter should be. This is a typewriter that really proves the notion that Olympia typewriters are some of the finest typing machines ever made. The typing action is wonderfully smooth and solid, swift and efficient. 

    This lovely example of an OLYMPIA SM5 will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to preserve its condition and beauty. We have a lot of experience in shipping typewriters, guarantee safe delivery and have an excellent track record for proper packing and safe delivery. It will be fully insured for shipment.
