The Olympia mod. 8. I think this model ils the last sample of "Luxury" typewriter. It's heavy, it's shiny and it's "full optional", like..
- A calendar on the top left
- Switch for double spacing L I K E T H I S.
- Special paper guide for drawing tables
- Tabulator
- Fast-changing carrage system
- Fine regulation of the lower paper-guide pressure on the paper.
.. And nice glass panels on the sides and on the back.
The ribbon system is fascinating. Ribbon reversing can be manual or automatic.
