The Typewriter Database 1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1139892 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Robert Dalton: 1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1139892 Gray crinkle paint and brown Bakelite keys with the excellent Congress Pica typeface. Very light touch, a very fast machine working perfectly. The platen is rock hard but allows good imprints even with the low quality nylon ribbon. This machine begs you to use it. My first Olympia but it won't be my last. Came with the curvy wooden case.
