1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1063141 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1063141 Mark Schrad's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2023-03-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1063141 I got this very fine, chocolate-colored Olympia SM-3 from an antique shop in the Drexel Hill neighborhood of West Philadelphia, near the Garrettford stop of the 102 SEPTA line. It seems that the antique shop got it from a garage sale or estate sale, as the original owner's name-label was also within Drexel Hill. It needed a light cleaning, and the usual rubber replacements--and the inside of the case was a little funky, but otherwise it is one of the nicest Olympias I've had.
