1957 Olympia SM3

Serial #981571

Michigan antique mall purchase. White machine with black caps and white lettering. Tab settings on back of machine. Machine has wear marks on exterior paint but I don't mind since it means it was used. SN is on lower left when machine tipped backwards. Ribbon faint so used carbon paper for typeface specimen. Elite typeface. Came in the curved silver case.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
