The German-made Olympia typewriter has a reputation as one of the best makes available.  The SM-series heavy-duty portables have a design heritage dating back to 1950.  This machine was the last production typewriter that Olympia made, that was based on the mechanics of the SM.  It has all of the features that you would expect to find on a full-size office typewriter, including an infinitely-settable tabulator featuring a 'total tab. clear' lever on the carriage and a fold-up paper rest.  This machine has a delightful (and adjustable) keyboard 'touch' and will keep up with the most expert typist.  Less tiring to use than its carriage-shifted predecessors, the segment-shifted Monica S is a joy to work with.

The Monica S features a 44-character keyboard, tabulator, and a platen freehead (handy for lining up pre-printed forms precisely).  It comes with a snap-over carry case.

This particular machine has had very little use since new, and it shows !  It is as near new condition as is possible and was clearly cared for by its previous owner.  It is set up to provide many more years of reliable service.  Ribbons for this model are still readily available.  If you are a serious user looking for a quality product with built-in reliability - this is the typewriter to have.
