The Typewriter Database 1913 L.C. Smith 5 Serial # 216118 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1913 L.C. Smith 5 Serial # 216118 This was an Ebay purchase.

More information to come.


Update: 9/5/2016:

When I got this machine the frame that holds the carriage rail and controls was damaged in shipping causing the carriage to become loose.and I wasn't sure what to do with it.

I found out that one of the ball bearings was missing from the carriage rail bearing race. I measured the existing one and ordered some new ball bearings. Once I replace the bearing I will post another update.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
