1956 Olympia SM3 #762001


A GREAT buy from a man who was closing his interior decorating business. Only $10! It was in perfect condition and even came with the key to the case. He said the font was cursive, but then I discovered it was actually italic. This is my typewriter of choice for personal letters. You can't get any more stylish than this! I loved it so much I went out and bought a second SM3 with regular Pica font.

I am a professional historian and writer. I have been collecting typewriters since 2013, and use them for all of my work (novels, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and personal letters). I have a passion for all things antique, but hold a special place for these tools. Some of my collection is up for sale or trade, so if you see something you want, let me know!
