Works fine as far as I can tell; I purchased it from someone on Facebook Marketplace in St. Peter's, Missouri for $25. Only the comma key seems to stick, and only once in a while. I'll be cleaning the typebars in another typewriter soon so I'll probably try to clean this one up too just to make sure it's clean. I'm liking it though.

I've been interested in typewriters for some time, but I only recently obtained my first one, an electric, and in short order obtained several more manuals, and only one of the manuals worked when I obtained it.
I travel and am kind of a nomad so I like looking for typewriters, and would like to learn more about fixing and maintaining them.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Silent on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Silent By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
