1949 Smith Corona Sterling #5A116835X


Updated with the type sample. A few Greek letters and the whole set of subscript numbers. I guess it would it make useful to write chemical formulas.

Interestingly enough the ribbon colour selector has the black position locked out permanently so it can be set in red or stencil positions only - see photos 10 and 11 - possibly to accommodate the huge brackets (or skeletal formula elements?) at the ends of row 2 and 3 of the keyboard.

Typeface Specimen:


Hunter: Piotr Trumpiel (zetix)
