Item is an original World War Two German military and war correspondent typewriter with its commercial wooden carrying case. These typewriters were lightweight and easily portable to meet the needs of the German Army.

The serial number on this typewriter is 403522. After the war someone tried to de-Nazify it by painting over the SS on the key pad and removed the SS runes from the striker. This paint has been removed once again exposing the SS runes making it a good display item.

The body appears to have been painted black over the original grayish green color making it appear a darker grayish black.

Typewriter full functions as designed with the exception that when typing, the carriage only travels ¾ of the way to the left. The carriage will travel all the way to the left when the release button is pressed. There is a repair on the lower left front of the frame; otherwise physically the item is in good condition.

The carrying case is typical for the World War Two era, but is not the tactical style which can also be found with these SS Olympia typewriters. The original bumper pads on the inside of the case dried out and have been removed and replaced with temporary pads. Other then that the case is original. Case comes with working lock and key.

These SS Olympia typewriters are hard to find and make a great addition to any World War Two collection.  [ad] [ph:L]
