1955 Olympia SM3 Serial # 608168 1955 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 608168 Jessica Winkowski's 1955 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2019-05-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1955 Olympia SM3 Serial # 608168 Purchased 5/4/2019
Wait, don't I already have a green SM3...? This one is pica, other is elite, so it's not the same! This one also has some slightly different keys than my other SM3s. There is a degree/division key, and above the period is a tall, straight line instead of another period. Odd! I might keep it just because of those keys, but I'm not sure.

The real treasure, though, is the ephemera that came with it. Now I've got a copy of the Olympia type styles booklet, and there are also pamphlets for the SM3, SG1, and an electric model! I will try to get them scanned and added to this gallery later.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).
