I mistyped when I said I paid 12 times the cost of the typewriter. In reality it was more like 7 times. My math failed me! Also, Olympia looks really strange hyphenated after the "Ol" (it looks like zero--one) and "ab-out" is about as strange! I think my English failed as well.
What a steal!! I'm glad it's OK despite the poor packing.ReplyDelete

This machine looks like it means business! Very elegantly utilitarian. I imagine it would indeed be very satisfying to type on.ReplyDelete
I like the pitch very much. You can get more words on a page!
What a nice Olympia. I understand that 11 point font is standard for these machines. I just found a "new" 1967 SM8 this weekend http://vermontvintagetypewriter.blogspot.com/2015/05/tell-them-what-youre-looking-for.htmlReplyDelete
