Hey Jackson. A bump for your fine looking Cremina. Perhaps a few more photos up here would be good. The badge, maybe close up of the group, and/or lever where it's secured by the pins. Has she been serviced recently (seals, gaskets, piston pulled and gaskets lubed?)
I loved my Cremina every day I had her. Good luck with your sale!
Thank you for the kind words. Here is a shot of the boiler to show what great condition it is in. The seals work great and the machine performs flawlessly. Again, I have several other high-res photos I can email to interested parties.
That's great price for great machine. Maybe you can buy unverified machine from ebay for little less, but then spend hours and hours of time trying to fix it up and make it work at the end making it more expensive than this one... And no asbestos around boiler makes it a steal... If I did not have brand new Cremina, I'd jump on this one.

Bump for having the Penney tamper. Is the Bottomless also Penney? If so, that's about $300 right there. I had both the Penny tamper and PF. They are beautiful, and the tamper PERFECTLY fits the Elektra double basket, which is deeper and can hold 16 grams easily.
For those new to levers, the Olympia Cremina is perhaps the best manual lever ever built for the home. With proper care and maintenance, it will outlast the owner.
