1966 Cursive Olympia SM8
Up for sale is a nice 1966 Olympia SM8 which writes in cursive, otherwise known as script font. (See second picture for the type sample.) This SM8 is in really great shape, and is fully functional right down to the bell. As just about all Olympias are, this machine was made in Western Germany and was truly built to last. This typewriter comes with the original instructions manual, the final testing paper from the factory, as well as unpacking instructions and a tiny slip with the machine information. Universal ribbons fit this machine, so it's not a worry keeping this one going. This machine is very easy to use and can definitely be used as a workhorse because of how solid this typewriter is mechanically.
