This Olympia Monica belongs to the renewed version of the model. It's a decaf version of the mighty SM9, but even if it doesn't have all the capabilities of the source model, it's an outstanding typewriter.
In fact, its... oustandingness (if the terms even exists (and if not I'm coining it now for an estimated duration of the length of this paragraph)) can very well be assessed because this machine is in flawless condition. Very few typewriters are so well preserved. In fact, this one is so well cared of that my grandpa has scrounged it from me, giving me back my Nakajima 8000. No doubt he's got the best part of the deal!
But that's the reason there's no typeface sample. I didn't make one on arrival and now it's flown away. This machine has stayed at home for approximately 2 months.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia Monica on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia Monica By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
