SORRY, SOLD! 1956 Olympia SM3 Typewriter
  • SORRY, SOLD! 1956 Olympia SM3 Typewriter


    This is a fine OLYMPIA SM3 DeLuxe typewriter manufactured in 1956. It is in excellent condition in every way and has been professionally serviced, aligned and adjusted.  It has been adjusted to have a light shift and a light touch. It is ready to type!
    For many, the Olympia is considered to be the "King of the Typewriters" Or "Queen"--depending on who you ask!. It is one of the most well-engineered, solid, durable and usable typewriters ever manufactured. The SM series of typewriters from the Olympia factories in Germany are considered by many to be the "gold-standard" of what a modern portable typewriter should be.  It is perfect for a fast typer, or a slower one.

    With an ACME Typewriter, you know you are getting a fully-working--as original--typewriter. The only thing that you have to do is sit down, put paper on the roller and start typing. It comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal attached to the typewriter. This seal permanently identifies this typewriter as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. We guarantee safe delivery and provide careful and attentive after-purchase advice and assistance from the date of purchase to the end of eternity to ensure your full satisfaction. In terms of an investment, the Acme Seal proves that this machine was restored in 2023 by the Acme Type Machine Company. This can add value in the event that you wish to sell this typewriter in the future. And the fact that this has a new platen adds even more value.

    The platen roller is in fine condition, smooth and clean. The paper feed rollers are in fine condition and grip the paper well. The rubber feet are, also, in fine condition and soft, holding the typewriter well to the desktop. The chrome is shiny and unblemished. The painted finish is in excellent condition.

    The keyboard is standard English language QWERTY with extra keys for European languages. The typeface is Olympia's Pica (10 c.p.i.). 

    This excellent example of an OLYMPIA SM3 will be packed and shipped with the greatest care to preserve its condition and beauty. We have a lot of experience in shipping typewriters and have an excellent track record for proper packing and safe delivery. It will be fully insured for shipment.
