Optima Elite Portable (1959)
Manufactured in 1959 this top quality German typewriter is in excellent original condition with attractive two tone casings and chocolate brown keytops. 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 writes very well with a nice clear pica typeface giving you 10 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.
