1950s GERMAN OPTIMA ELITE 3 TYPEWRITER

















Fantastic two tone green German metal typewriter in its original carry case.
Dates to 1950s and was made in East Germany post WWII.

The typewriter is in very good used condition with only minor signs of use
as can be seen in the photos. About the 'worst' thing it some flaking
of the body colour to the right lower corner of the machine.
Not that bad but needs to be mentioned for accuracy of description.
The beige carry case cover is in fair condition only with a
large interior water stain and the metal clasp doesn't seem
to want to stay fastened anymore but it may come good with some TLC.

The colour of the typewriter is spectacular with the majority of the body being
a sea green colour and the top removable housing, the keyboard and
the control knobs are all in a contrasting emerald green.
It is finished off with a smattering of bright and shiny chrome accents.
It is quite beautiful - which is not how you would normally describe an old typewriter.

Everything still works of course but the ribbon will need replacing.

This must have been seriously sheik in its day.

SORRY, I'VE SOLD!
