1961 Olympia Splendid 33 Serial # 95-495472 1961 Olympia Splendid 33 typewriter, Serial # 95-495472 Dimitris Nikou's 1961 Olympia Splendid 33 typewriter. 2022-04-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dimitris Nikou: 1961 Olympia Splendid 33 Serial # 95-495472 A basic Olympia Splendid 33 from 1961 (most probably) found at my favorite flea market, dirty and full of mud (it was raining during the previous night in Athens and I can tell they had it somewhere out uncovered), I really felt pity for it. Despite the missing ribbon cover, when I got home I discovered that two of the typebars had broken links and that is something I cannot fix, unfortunately. I kept the machine for some time but in the end I gave it for free to someone who needed some parts for his Splendid.

Writer and blogger from Athens, Greece. I own a small collection of typewriters, dated from 1913 (my oldest one, a Remington Standard 10) up to the late 70's. Most of my machines are functionable and I try to repair any with problems that keeps it from typing. For me, it is important for a typewriter not just to sit on a shelve for display, but also to be able to type when I want to. On the links below you will find my blogs and social media profiles. Feel free to follow me and get in touch if you want. I am always happy to communicate :)
