The Olympia Robust was a WWII German Field Typewriter, said to be used by the SS. This one was left in Poland where it was re-keyed, re-painted and years later sold as junk from a Government sale. The question then becomes is the possible use of the tool impact its modern use? For me it was so far from its original condition that I took it a step further and added more color. Now it is just a working typewriter, a tool making it’s own history.
