The black Olympia SM2 with English QWERTY keyboard arrived today.
It has a damaged case and a cart lock that does not work (at least it seems because the teeth do not fit in the holes in the cart), the ink ribbon is more than dry as you can see from the photos but I think with a new one everything is back.
The SM 2 is very similar to the SM 3 which I already change only some aesthetic things and the block on the SM 2 is on the cart while on the SM 3 it is on the keys (perhaps an improvement compared to that of the 2 that would have given problems).
Conclusion With a bit of cleaning and tidying up the block, I think I was once again the wonderful typewriter.
