Oliver No 9 Typewriter
Item Was collected from an elegant Area in Buckinghamshire and item belonged to a Late RAF Hero who had this typewriter in his Home Office since early 50s serving as a Display while he used a Royal P Typewriter for his Typing.
Item was in bad condition but we decided to make it a long term project to get the best result.
Serail is 791XXX from the 1919 Issued of the Oliver 9 Typewriters.

Newly Serviced and Painted Typewriter
Item has Paint imperfections and Paint Cracks on the paint due to the old metal surface of this Oliver.
Keys are complete and clean with age signs on the sides and some keys have erased black marking on them
Chrome is still in its original condition and we kept its vintage look.
NEW Decals added to the front and middle plate as old ones were scratches and fading.
There is a difference in colour between the newly painted part and the original colour that is only found now on the carriage paper plate on top. (Pictured from top for a better preview on the last picture)
The Oliver 9 is with a Removable Carriage and that helped us make sure we tune and service the item to a perfect working order.
The Machine will nicely type.
Platen is in very good condition with also excellent paper feeders and rollers.
line Spacing is working as it should with a nice dinging bell at the end of your margins.

Kind note that this item will type and amazingly in a nice way but it is a collectable more than it is for daily usage.
