oops ! just realised last sentence missing ‘m’ – … wish list is growing faster than the rate i am striking it!
here she is – big and beautiful.
love the case, can double up as a luggage bag for a one night trip! 🙂
here is the comparison with a compact tippa, safari – size L and tippa – size S.
she is quite bulky, more than double the height of tippa. certainly not for lugging around. 😦
it’s wednesday!! have a happy mid-week! 🙂

here she is – my hermes with script typeface.

how can one reject a cursive typeface typewriter? i cant. so here is my no 2.
oops! hope it’s not too hard to read.
here is the plastic clip-on case.
just out of the box, padding still on key slugs.
i like how slim it is, at approx 2.5 inches tall.
cute heart-shaped keys.
serial numbers are under the carriage. this one is made in 1968. nice.

i am on a blogging marathon here, 3 posts consecutively in a night! i would love to do a typecast but think it may not be a good idea at midnight. i will update most post with corresponding typecast later. so come visit again! 🙂
i literally went bananas, mad, looking for the ‘CURSIVE’ one. i finally bought one from a collector who are letting this go most probably because she scored another one in better cosmetic condition. not that i mind.
meet olympia sf with cursive typeface. most collectors i came across here lovingly named their tappies but i just couldnt associate any of them with a name… hmm.. dont know why. i like to personalise it though. here, i pasted paper lace on the tappy.
the serial nos is under the carriage. this olympia is made in 1967.
