The Typewriter Database 1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A160116 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A160116 This was a well spent $25 I almost didn't spend because these machines are pretty unremarkable. Except of course when you find a really good one like this one. Drawband discount, easy fix, and then it was a really great typewriter I expect to hang on to and use for many years.
