1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1085773 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1085773 Mark Schrad's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2022-01-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1085773 I got this 1957 Olympia SM-3 in exceptional shape from a seller in Havertown, PA, in January of 2022. Excellent shape! Even the case is in near-mint condition. It was originally sold by the Barry Typewriter Company at 6204 Germantown Ave., which is in NW Philadelphia. I had not previously come across that local typewriter shop... though Google maps now shows that it is nothing but a torn-down empty lot.
