1939 Olympia 8 Serial # 319456 1939 Olympia 8 typewriter, Serial # 319456 Alfred Kaltenecker's 1939 Olympia 8 typewriter. 2017-12-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alfred Kaltenecker: 1939 Olympia 8 Serial # 319456 Heavyweight, war horse. This is the most solid typewriter in my collection. Also coming back from a basement to the light. It has to be cleaned, but even in the actual state it is fully functional and the ribbon (after pulling some meters from the bobbin) contains enough colour.

The typeface test was written with the old ribbon!

Weight: 16,8 kg ! Cast iron.

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.
