The Typewriter Database 1950 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 206100 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1950 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 206100 This was a flea market find for $30. Very clean, works great but was stiff at first from lack of use. A great all round typer.

Came with a case that would have gone with a Speedline Silent (see gallery). Odd, but I think it was bought that way just given that a lot of original paperwork was still included. May have been a dealers way of getting rid of extra previous generation cases, or the original had a defect and was swapped out.

(Updated)

After seeing several machines on eBay, shopgoodwill, and even here on the database I have concluded that the black cases were used in the first few years of Super 5 production.

Sold!
