1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1214255 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter, Serial # 1214255 Michael Bartelt's 1957 Olympia SM3 typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 1957 Olympia SM3 Serial # 1214255 My first and most reliable machine, not to mention loudest. But of course, not in a bad way - nothing quite soothes the soul like typebars striking platen on an SM3. These West German tanks are unmatched in their manufacturing quality, and I'm confident mine will be writing on for another 60 years or more!
