These machines were for the "Deutschen Mechaniker", ("German Mechanics"), but I don't know why they had these machines and not just Olympias. Probably just a strange glorification of the "German Mechanic" by the Nazis.
This machine is very damaged. The whole frame is bent. Probably somebody throw it accidentally on the bottom. But it types. Most functions are working.

Typewriter collector from Germany. I collect all brands, but like Olivetti the most. I'm not that type of collector that buys the most expensive, old or rare pieces. I love and collect typewriters because it was an everyday product millions of people used. Much of them are well-made and were so expensive for there pre-owner – now, people want not to throw them away, but they don't want them anymore – and so, there are ridiculous cheap. When I see a typewriter, standing around and being so cheap, I cannot abandon it. (I hope my english is at least understandable, feel free to correct me).
