1954 Olympia SM3 Serial # 500795 1954 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 500795 Ryan Adney's 1954 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2014-04-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ryan Adney: 1954 Olympia SM3 Serial # 500795 This was an early purchase for the CTP. It was in dismal shape and still is, but it types like a dream. The carriage return screw broke many years ago and the previous owner thought it was fine that the lever was dragging across the body. That is why there is a deep gouge across the maroon body.
