Missing plastic paper support, but otherwise in very good condition.

My new favorite typewriter though very large and very heavy.

Per Olympia brochure, called Olympia SG 3 L or SG 3 de luxe because of these features:

- paper injector lever for automatic paper feed
- double spacing key

Also of note: margin release key can be used to disentangle jammed type bars.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
