1967 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 1450634 1967 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter, Serial # 1450634 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1967 Olympia SF De Luxe typewriter. 2022-01-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1967 Olympia SF De Luxe Serial # 1450634 A lovely condition Olympia SF with script no. 69 (aka short script, on account of the letters being short enough to support a duo-tone ribbon). Little is known about the machine's past. The seller said it had been used on business trips to Asia, which could explain its lack of Norwegian special characters (which most machines here in Norway has), but it seems conflicting to me that a machine used for business has script. I always assumed script would be viewed "unprofessional", in kind of the same way we generally don't use "Comic Sans" as our font for our CVs for example. Whatever the case, the machine came in a lovely black leather case with brass handle plates. The machine itself was very clean and nice right out of the box. I didn't have to do any cleaning to get it to work. Very good condition, although the rubber on the platen is of course in a marble like state.

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
