1957 Optima Elite 3 Serial # 977441 1957 Optima Elite 3 typewriter, Serial # 977441 Sergei Viktorovich's 1957 Optima Elite 3 typewriter. 2021-04-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sergei Viktorovich: 1957 Optima Elite 3 Serial # 977441 This typewriter came to me from St. Petersburg. The sweetest pot-bellied Optima, reminiscent of an old-fashioned fridge. In the original, it was in Latin, but it was re-brazed in Soviet times with a state standard typeface. The "excellent" quality of the re-brazing can be seen on the type sample. I would like to pull out the hands of this "skilful master".
