Original German WWII Rare SS Typewriter by Olympia Büromaschinenwerke AG.

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Now this is something we have only had several of before: an original German WWII Schutzstaffel (SS) typewriter! This is a ROBUST model, made by OLYMPIA BÜROMASCHINENWERKE AG. ERFURT (Olympia Office Machine Works Co). There is also the script logo Olympia on the typewriter itself, which is marked on the bottom with serial number 403524. The typewriter seems functional and intact, complete with a ribbon, which dried out long ago.

Now, the question most have is "what makes this an SS typewriter?". That would be the "shift" position shown on the machines key for 5, which is the double Sig rune emblem of the SS: ᛋᛋ. The striker itself has this on it, and it is definitely the original one. Very few of these survived the war intact, as most were modified for use post war with replacement of the key and striker.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a rare piece of military office equipment, still in very nice condition. Ready to add to your collection and display!
