Here is my new Olympia Traveller Typewriter "brand new" from 1972. It was still in its original packaging since it was produced - never used never opened. Somehow it was a bit like jumping on the time machine and opened it in 1972. Amazingly enough almost 40 years after it is still a new typewriter !!
Here is a detail of the original packing
After the box we see the original plastic protection with a warning: do not open beside for checking or usage
To avoid humidity it was packed with the "trockenmittel" to keep it try
Outside the plastic
Well ordered inside even after 38 years !
Date of Warranty 31 Jan 1972
Nice typeface of the 70's
Special instructions to remove the various protections including plastic pins
Ribbon and protection
The keyboard with my favorite German layout that includes the ß
Brand new !
Nice detail of the back
Rings a bell ? :)
Welcome www.9.ai reader ! For the first time in 38 years some ink
Which typeface is this ? Not a lot of spacing between the letters !
Here it is ready for use
I hope you enjoyed this special review of this old but new typewriter. The typing is still a bit stiff given that it is new and the original ribbon a bit dry but it certainly a gorgeous typewriter for a typecast, letters
and pretty much everything !
Feel free to comment and giving me some hints about which typeface is this olympia using ! (elite?)
Thanks for reading !
