1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1000224 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1000224 Stephen Hanafin's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2021-11-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Stephen Hanafin: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1000224 Picked up from eBay at a good price. This off-white SM3 has glossy paint that has suffered a few scratches over the years, but is still looking pretty good. Its typeface is Congress Pica, which looks great to me. Almost like a proportional spaced typeface. It came with the streamline case and everything works.
