This typewriter was made in the early 1960's in Western Germany. As you can see in the pictures it has the very rare typeface, I have collected typewriters for years and I have never seen another splendid 66 with this typeface in the flesh, only online. This is a stunning machine, all metal casing, lovely retro styling a very nice design and in a beautiful shade of cream with teal roller knobs, the outer casing has no noticeable marks or damage. Its in perfect working order, as you can see from the pictures it types well, has a nice font and a good usable ribbon. Even the bell still works! I recently fitted a new return string to the clockwork motor, so the carriage moves very well, no sticking at all, I have given it a basic service and oiled the moving parts and also replaced a small worn cog, I have another one of these typewriters which isn't in such a good condition cosmetically so I took the part from it, its an original Olympia cog, not a reproduction. Ready to use or perfect for a collector, it would make a nice Christmas present for somebody who enjoys spending their time writing or collecting typewriters. Please note this isn't a new typewriter, its roughly 50 years old, its not perfect, the outer carry case has a few marks and is showing its age slightly, the zip doesn't work but otherwise its in very good order with no obvious marks or scratches to the machine casing, and everything works as it should. As you can see I am no photographer! the photos really don't do this lovely machine justice. Thanks for looking and happy bidding! Condition: very good condition.
