Optima Elite 3 Portable (1956)
Manufactured in 1956 this top quality German typewriter is in fantastic original condition and has been fully serviced in our workshop with a new ribbon fitted. The Optima models were manufactured to a very high standard and are almost identical inside to the early Olympia Elite portables. The reason for this was that Olympia and Optima were the same company until 1947, when Olympia moved to Wilhelmshaven in Western Germany. This very fine example has superb quality piano black mirror finish enamel paintwork, it writes very well with a nice clear elite typeface (12 characters to the inch). The typewriter is supplied with it’s original carry case, and a copy of user instructions.
Replacement ribbons for this machine are available to order on our website. (Group 1 )
