1958 Olympia SF

Serial #5-130319

Nice little typewriter. Some like it, some hate it. This typewriter polarizes a little bit the collector`s community. Obviously the pros and cons depend on the manufacturing date, too.

I stay indifferent: The 11 CPI fonts and the printing quality are excellent, the lacquer quality and some mechanical features mean, the key touch a little bit spongy. Question of getting used to.

At the end of the day I prefer Princess, Gossen Tippa, Hermes and other ultraflats.

Collector with typewriter virus living in Austria. Fourty years ago typewriters were only standard office equipment for me. I was really glad to get my first but simple word processors in the early Eighties with delete, copy/paste and whatever wonderful functions. This fascination is over. Now I have returned to real mechanics.
