SORRY, SOLD! 1969 Olympia Traveller DeLuxe
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1969 Olympia Traveller DeLuxe


    We are pleased to offer this beautiful OLYMPIA Traveller de Luxe typewriter, manufactured in 1969. It is in superb condition overall and has been serviced, aligned and adjusted. The platen roller is in like-new condition. It has a new ribbon and comes with a hard case, also in excellent condition.

    This is an extraordinary typewriter with a bold--definitely 60s!--look. For many, Olympia typewriters are considered to be the "gold standard" for mid-century typewriters. The company produced typewriters among the most well-engineered, solid, durable and usable that were ever manufactured. This one is one of the best maintained Travellers that I have seen in a very long time and seems to have been little used.

    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 keyboard is English standard QWERTY and the typeface is the extraordinarily beautiful Olympia's Elite with 11 characters per inch. It has extra keys for writing in Spanish and other European languages. As noted, it comes with a new Acme Signature blue ribbon.

    Regarding the rubber: Platen Roller is like new. The Paper Feeder Rollers are like new. The Feet are clean and soft like new.
    Regarding the chrome: Few discernible signs of use or wear.
    Regarding the Body condition: Excellent, unblemished.
    Regarding the mechanical condition: Working perfectly, as originally manufactured.

    This typewriter comes with the original case which is in excellent condition inside and outside.
