The Typewriter Database 1935 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 1S 17995 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Melissa Favara: 1935 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 1S 17995 This machine belonged to my favorite high school teacher, whose daughter graciously passed it to me. It was in storage and very dusty with no ribbon and a stuck carriage return. It's back to life and types well with a nice compact font, though it does skip a space occasionally.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
