This wonderful historic item, ‘Modell Olympia’ was made by Olympia company in Erfurt, Germany. This fully operational item is a very rare example of a Third Reich portable typewriter that was used by the military in the field. The wooden box is sturdy and has all the hardware still present, making it easy and convenient to carry this typewriter. Both, the typewriter and the box show signs of wear but still very nice and not even the ribbon is dried out. There are no parts missing, all moving parts move the way they are supposed to and it is ready to be used. A very hard to find artifact.
The sturdy wooden box shows some wear on the outside but no real damage and all the hardware is present but did a great job protecting this rare artifact in an attic for the last 70+ years where it was recently found in Germany. The typewriter itself is in used but still very nice condition. Most of the original paint of the typewriter is still there. There are no missing or lose parts, everything works just fine, the sled moves easily, the “Umschalter” (Caps Lock on todays keyboards) and all other keys move fine, including the SS key. Who knows in which campaigns this typewriter was used in the field and who typed on it…
