1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1038681 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1038681 Ric Wyckoff's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2013-11-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ric Wyckoff: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1038681 Got this on eBay for $63 + shipping, my first typewriter purchase. I named him Wilhelm, which seemed fitting. He needed some cleaning and a new ribbon, and now he types very well, a good solid feel which takes me back to typing class in summer school in 1968.

In the beginning was the Tao, and the Tao created one, and the one created two, and two created three, and three created the ten thousand things...and thus it is with typewriter collecting! Hiker, photographer, acupuncturist and more in the Arizona desert.
