1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 959668 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 959668 Jessica Winkowski's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2019-02-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 959668 Purchased 10/22/2018

By price paid, the most expensive Olympia in my collection. I probably overpaid considering the condition it's in, but at the time I didn't have an Olympia yet with Congress font. The segment needs flushed out before it will type. There's also a bit of surface rust throughout the interior of the machine, and the tops of screws.

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!).
