The Typewriter Database 1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A116835X From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Piotr Trumpiel: 1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 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.
