1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1069522 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1069522 John Cooper's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2022-08-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1069522 I purchased this beautiful brown SM3 with brown key tops from its local owner in June 2018. She'd had it in the 1980s and typed her thesis on it; she'd had it professionally serviced at that time and had stored it carefully since. It's still clean as a whistle, with shiny rails and fixtures, and works great. Uses Olympia's #8 Elite typeface.

In August 2022, traded to Ace Typewriter in Portland, Oregon for a gray/brown SM3 fitted with Italic Elite no. 89 type (https://typewriterdatabase.com/see.18574.typewriter).

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Always learning!



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.
