The Typewriter Database 1954 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A469231 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 1954 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A469231 I was sent a message from a friend, who said that there was a typewriter at an estate sale on his street. Unfortunately the estate sale was an auction, so I had to hurry to get signed up and get an auction number, etc., so that I could bid on it. Nobody else was interested in it so I got it for a great $5.

UPDATE: Through digital archaeology, I now know that I bought this typewriter on August 24th, 2013 at about 2:45 pm.

I've been hunting for typewriters since 2012, but I've loved them for long before that... about 2003. In the short amount of time in which I've started seriously collecting I've amassed a collection of over 65 machines (now specializing in Royals), one of which is parts. At the ripe old age of 19, to boot!

In November of 2013 I participated in National Novel Writing Month and hit a pretty decent 105,991 words; all written on manual machines. I think that this is a new record, but there isn't any official record keeping in the Typewriter Brigade.

I also run The Daily Clipper, which while admittedly abandoned for 2 years is back up and running, soon to bring you articles on all sorts of history. Scheming and planning a website on the same domain.
