The Typewriter Database 1952 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 310207 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Timothy Conine: 1952 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 310207 This belongs to the Upper Peninsula Steam & Gas Engine Association Museum in Escanaba, MI.
It is a free museum with some 60,000 items in it's collection, only 12 of which are typewriters, but about $500 in annual maintenance budget. The operational status of the museum's typewriters is usually not good.
They weren't so much "donated" as "salvaged", but history is history, and the hope is that, as de facto curator, I can get some help in repairing the machines.

Untested.
