1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1100892 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1100892 Adam Kohlhaas's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2018-07-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Adam Kohlhaas: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1100892 This typewriter was purchased from someone who received it for free from a client of theirs. The machine is very clean (save for some large dust or what looks like drywall particles inside), but after it was blown out with an air duster, it shined up nicely.

Everything functions perfectly. The only thing that needs work is the platen, which has become rock solid and has some white paint flecks on it. It is a lovely machine.
