1955 Olympia SM3

Serial #605468

This wide carriage Olympia belongs to a local community arts space. I brought it home to repair an unresponsive space bar and misaligned text and then returned it.

Thanks to the ample information available online, I was able to fix both issues. See links.

Serial number stamped on the bottom, on a rail near the back.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
