1955 Olympia SM3 Serial # 637944 1955 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 637944 Rob MacKillop's 1955 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2018-09-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rob MacKillop: 1955 Olympia SM3 Serial # 637944 A (seemingly) rare beauty in black, this machine has been refurbished by Tom Lucas, "The Typewriter Man", and is in perfect working condition. I also paid for a new platen, which Tom arranged to be made - I can't remember exactly where, but in England.
Easy to type on, and I always feel it wants me to go faster than I able to.
