Optima Elite 3 Portable (1956)
Manufactured in 1956 this top quality German typewriter is in excellent 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 version of the Optima portable was first produced in 1955, and this fine example writes excellently with a nice clear elite typeface giving you12 characters to the inch. Features include a keyset tabulator for column work and two colour ribbon selection. 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 )
