The German-made luxury Olympia SF DeLuxe is regarded as the ultimate Olympia portable typewriter. Known as one of the best-engineered and reliable machines, the SF was made as the flagship of the range throughout the 1960's. This particular machine was one of the last of its kind, manufactured as production was beginning to wind down in favour of the more modern Traveller model that was finally introduced in 1970. Already a desirable machine, this example is one of the genuinely rare ones factory-fitted with Cursive Scipt typeface. This looks like miniature joined-up handwriting ! Whichever character is selected, it appears to be automatically joined to the next.
The SF features visible margins behind a clear scale on the top of the carriage, keyboard touch control, pop-up paper rest and a margin release key that also automatically releases jammed typebars ! Every detail to make the machine as convenient and pleasant to use has been thought of. In excellent condition and ready to give many more years of reliable service, this woluld make the ultimate gift. This typewriter takes readily-available ribbons, including a special purple one that we can supply !
