1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1316572 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1316572 Rick Willis's 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2018-11-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rick Willis: 1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1316572 This is Typewriter Number One of my small collection. Evidently it was originally purchased in Europe--see the British pound symbol in place of the number sign. It also features the older four dot margin release button, and it has thicker ribbon spindles requiring the DIN 2103 ribbon spools instead of the standard size. Best part as far as I'm concerned is the beautiful Congress Elite No. 84 typeface (11 pitch). Great machine.
