1962 Olympia Splendid 33 Serial # 633844 1962 Olympia Splendid 33 typewriter, Serial # 633844 Tas Kyprianou's 1962 Olympia Splendid 33 typewriter. 2022-10-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1962 Olympia Splendid 33 Serial # 633844 Lovely super portable machine. Sold it on though as it was just a little too clanky for my liking. Gorgeous typeface (when I eventually fixed it).

Also as an aside, I LOVED the M on this typeface. most machines I own have Ms with middle stems that touch the baseline. This one only reached down to the middle of the character. I liked that. . . . it's the little things.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
