Serial #1061029

1957 Olympia SM3

Gray with deep burgundy keys. Italic typeface, apparently the "Professional Elite" in Olympia's designation. The stroke on this type is much heavier in feel than the more delicate and craftsmanlike "Italic pica" seen elsewhere.

Living in So. Calif. USA. Bought a mint SC flattop at an estate sale for $5 some years ago, and enjoyed the tactility of typing after using computers since 1968, the punch-card era. I gave it to my mother-in-law to exercise her arthritic fingers. After she passed away last year I found it among her things. I wanted something newer, so bought an Olympia SM3. I am not a collector, but seem to have acquired more than 30 machines since March 2016, and have passed several on to family and friends, and bartered with others.
