Description:

Great "Progress" by "Olympia".
This typewriter is differ from later "Olympia"s not only externally, but also by the feelings of typing.
It has a colour selector, three-stage line spacing.
Top of typewriter is configured not as a folding cover, and a rotary wings.
The body is not stamped, but cast.
On the front side there is an interesting decal "OLYMPIA Typewriter Company". It gives me a reason to believe, that is an export "Olympia".
The original layout is QWERTY with "@", many fractional nembers and signs of dollar, the yen and the pound, but now it converted to a cyrillic layout. Original keys are covered with cyrillic stencils and rings.
In general, this is the most pleasant black portable "Olympia", I have ever senn before.
In all senses and parameters it likely not a later versions of a portable "Olympia"s, but a "Kappel VA" typewriter.

Hi!
I'm Sergei, I was made in Russia)))))))
I wouldn't call myself a hunter - I just love typewriters, use them and collect some of them.
Many of it comes and goes out, solds to someone else, and others who "gets" me, remains)
I can't tell where I've developed a passion for typewriters. It seems that I was born with it. At least for as long as I can remember, I have always loved it. The first machine I bought in 2008. It was our, Soviet "Lyubava", a copy of "Erika". Before it, I've seen typeriters only on pictures)
