This is a very late version of Monica. The name describes a lot of Olympia models. This machine is not bad at all, but from a company who made machines like the SM and SG you expect more than this piece of plastic (nearly everything is out of plastic). This machine was made in United Kingdom and not in Wilhelmshaven.

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).
