Circa - 1953

Country of Origin - West Germany

Dimensions - 13" by 12.125"

Weight - 11 Kilogram (in case)

Condition - Excellent Used Condition, fully working and still retaining it's original case.....there is one or two very light rubs to the casing from use. The Case is in Very Good Used Condition with the holding mechanism and catch lock working perfectly, handle good and strong and no damage as such, though there is some very light marks to the case (if you require further pics of the case feel free to contact).

Other Interesting Points - This particular example is a early example of the SM3 and carries quite a lot of the attributes of the early SM2...the main difference between the SM2 and 3 is the carriage return lever, which on the SM3's curves downwards rather than upwards as seen on the earlier SM2's. All SM series typewriters had superb build quality and featured hinged typebar covers, tension adjusters, etc... even the fitted hinged wooden case (think gramophone case) has a patented locking mechanism to hold the typewriter firmly in place when being transported.
