This little gem of a typewriter is in mint condition. It's shiny white exterior contrasted with crisp black base just screams Mad Men! It has an absolutely gorgeous 10 pitch pica (10 letters to the inch) font. Everything works as it should on this machine... all keys type flawlessly and the carriage glides smoothly. The bell still sings with authority when you reach your end margin. The ribbon still has plenty of ink.
This typewriter also exhibits the red circle (supposed to be an 'O') with an "i" in the center. This represents Olympia International, an emblem which Olympia was granted trademark rights in 1972. The sticker in the center reads, "Modern Office Service, Inc., PHONE 906-863-2691, Office Equipment, 434 - 10th Ave., Menominee, Mich." Such history!
