Great Olympia mod.8 in exellent condition with wooden case.

It's Is Awesome!
It's Amazing!
It's Perfect!

It shines, it sparkles, it's "just a space")

I wanted Olympia M8 for a very long time.
But despite the fact that is one of the most common office typewriters in Russia, I can't buy it)
Usually they are very tortured, or have unimaginably huge carriage, or lost spools, or obscenely expensive. And find Olympia with original wooden case - is a miracle.

It cost me about $ 40.
I had to ask a friend to transport it to me from the other end of Moscow. The machine is very heavy - about 20 kilograms with case.

She almost was not in use. The previous owner said it spent the last 30 years in the attic.

This machine has no disadvantages - it is one big and heavy dignity)))

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)
