1956 Olympia SM3 Serial # 815810 1956 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 815810 Edward Onda's 1956 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2018-06-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Edward Onda: 1956 Olympia SM3 Serial # 815810 This was my first SM3 Deluxe. It was in pretty descent condition, but needing a good cleaning and adjustments. I'm still working on the adjustments, as shown in the type. The platen needs to be resurfaced, and that should help. I didn't dive as deep into cleaning as I did on my SM4, but did a pretty decent cleaning

I have been collecting, restoring, and repairing, for a bit over 2 years now. The Majority of my collection is Mid and early century, and my preferred period is developing more to 19th century and early 20th. I am currently seeking more 19th century models to add to the collection.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Olympia SM3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Olympia Serial Number page and the Olympia SM3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
