The German-made Olympia typewriter has a reputation as one of the best makes available.  The SM-series heavy-duty portables were introduced in 1950, and are widely acknowledged to be one of the finest designs of portable typewriter ever produced.  These were steadily developed throughout the 1960's and '70's, the final model being the Monica 'S', by now in a plastic outer casing.  The Monica 'S' has all of the features that you would expect to find on a full-size office typewriter, including a handy freehead for lining up pre-printed forms precisely, and a full tabulator for column work. The Monica has a delightful (and adjustable) keyboard 'touch' and will keep up with the most expert typist. 

These machines were originally bought by users such as professional writers and small businesses and are intended for serious use. Ribbons for this model are still readily available.  If you are looking for a quality product with built-in reliability - this is the typewriter to have.
