Olympia SM3 DeLuxe Typewriter - Mid-Century Modern

Olympia SM3 DeLuxe Typewriter - Mid-Century Modern

Sorry, this item has sold.

The Olympia SM3 DeLuxe Typewriter is one of the most desired vintage typewriters for collectors. This particular model is a warm brown color with streamlined Mid-Century Modern lines. It was manufactured in West Germany in 1957, serial #107B283. Whomever owned it before had taken great care with this vintage typewriter. We've cleaned it even more thoroughly and tuned it up, and it works perfectly! We also just had this professionally serviced and "tuned" and it's glorious to type with.

We're offering free shipping within the United States for this typewriter.

If you've wanted to buy a working typewriter for writing the next great American novel, this is the one for you. The Olympia SM3 DeLuxe Typerwriter is a workhorse and is portable enough to take with you, but sturdy enough to not move all over your desk while typing. It weighs 20 pounds and uses a two-toned black and red typewriter ribbon. (We have added a new typewriter ribbon.)

The action on this typewriter is smooth and even, and it works exactly as it should. After you purchase, we'll send you a link to a .pdf download of the manual. This will help you out with general maintenance such as changing the typewriter ribbon and cleaning.

The case on this typewriter is a different story. This Olympia SM3 has its original painted silver wood case. While it's clean and doesn't have that dank, moldy smell, the cover is peeling back from the wood. This is normal and is how just about every Olympia SM3 case is now. We used some wood glue to repair it and did the best we could, but it's a bit fragile.

Do we purchase typewriters for the cases? This vintage Olympia typewriter works, is in clean condition and hard to find in this color. Attention, typewriter collectors and lovers of mid-century design, this one won't be around long!

In Case = 14.5" x 14" x 6"
