1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1017666 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1017666 Laurenz van Gaalen's 1958 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2020-10-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laurenz van Gaalen: 1958 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1017666 Excellent portable.

Despite well taken care of, this machine suffered from white rust, also known as wet storage stain. My SM2 with the same kind of case, had it too. Therefore I suspect the almost air-tight case is the culprit.

I live in The Netherlands.
Most common typewriter brands over here are Triumph/Adler, Olympia, Erika, Olivetti, Remington and Brother.
I collect and restore typewriters to learn about their design and to write with them.
