The Typewriter Database 1932 Smith Corona S-C Serial # 1018364 V From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1932 Smith Corona S-C Serial # 1018364 V This very early Smith Corona standard has been through quite a lot. At some point it lost both its ribbon cover (note the lack of medallion on the replacement it was given) and its case (more on that a little later). Against the odds, it still works almost perfectly. It is rather rough around the edges though, with many scratches and scrapes adorning its aged body. It has a harsh but crisp action in sharp contrast to the later flattop SC's I've used, which are usually smooth and light. However, this could be attributed to wear rather than any mechanical differences that may have come with slightly later models.

The case it came with isn't a Smith Corona case at all - it's a "Tacco Carry-All Portable Typewriter Carrying Case". The poor design of this case is the primary cause of damage to this machine, especially on the front part of the body. Needless to say, I won't be storing this machine in that case anymore.

Sold!
