The final gasp (1957-59) of the old Olympia-Plana design. Still a great-looking little typer, though not a wonderful one to use.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Optima P1 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Optima Serial Number page and the Optima P1 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
