The Typewriter Database 1941 Smith Corona Comet DeLuxe Serial # 1N15158 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alan Seaver: 1941 Smith Corona Comet DeLuxe Serial # 1N15158 The Comet marks the very end of the flattop body style that began a decade earlier with the Sterling. At this point, the flattop has been reduced to an economy typer. It looks a lot like the Standard, but even further stripped down--practically a Junior in a grown-up body. Notice that the side panels are completely flat and that there is no ribbon color selector. Backspace and Margin Release are its sole conveniences.

Non-DeLuxe Comets have the same black crinkle finish, with no stripes, and no logo on the paper tray. They say only "Corona" on the front. A 1W serial number prefix should identify these as regular Comets. 1W appears to have been reserved for Comet and 1N for Comet Deluxe.

About 15,000 Comet and Comet DeLuxes were made altogether, though because the SN sequences were shared the exact numbers made of each is unknown. The regular Comet was made from 1940-41 and the Comet DeLuxe in 1941 only.
