  • SORRY, SOLD! Mathematics Typewriter! 1954 Olympia SM3 Typewriter


    Not for Mathematicians only! But a perfect gift for your mathematician friend. This beautiful Olympia SM3 typewriter, manufactured in 1954, comes with extra keys for mathematics: square root, pi, sigma, plus, minus and Greek "t". The typewriter is in excellent condition in every way and has been professionally serviced, aligned and adjusted. It has a new ribbon so you can start typing immediately. We guarantee safe shipping anywhere in the world.

    This sage-green example of the Olympia SM3 will be perfect for typing a novel, for letter writing, for script-writing--really, for any typing. It is, simply, the finest quality typing machine. For many, the Olympia models are considered to be some of the most well-engineered, solid, durable and usable typewriter models 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 and has been adjusted to have a light "lift" when shifting. (Perfect for modern-day typers!)

    Acme typewriters have been the choice of discerning collectors and writers more than 1,000 times since we began selling online in 2016. We safely ship your typewriter from our store in the Netherlands and delivery time to the US averages only 3 days—this is a quicker delivery time even than most domestic shipments within the US!  Acme typewriters are covered by a 1-year warranty, and come with lifetime customer-care. 

    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. Your typewriter comes with the "Acme" lead certification seal which permanently identifies it as a genuine Acme-restored typewriter and provides for a one-year warranty at no charge. 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.

    The body finish is without significant marks of wear or use. The chrome is in perfect condition except for a tiny area on the carriage return lever. The rubber parts (feeder rollers, feet, etc.) are pliant and in fine condition. The platen is clean and smooth and ready to type.

    The keyboard is English (QWERTY) with accent keys for European languages. The typeface is Olympia's Pica (10 c.p.i.). There is a new ribbon and it is ready to type as soon as you receive it.


    This fine 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.
