1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1301034 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1301034 Mark Petersen's 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2018-04-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1301034 Traded for a rusty Argyle P-201 this Olympia is in mint condition. Perhaps it wasn't used much because it can only be used to type Slavic languages, since it has the Russian Cyrillic keyboard. I think I might be motivated to study Russian again when I can afford to take a class, this is an excellent machine to type with.
A friend was so excited about this I had to let it go. I type in Russian maybe once a year, and decided one Russian language machine is enough. It is in a good home.
