The Typewriter Database 1954 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 472232 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jer Wal: 1954 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 472232 Made in U.S.A. 12-pitch Courier font. Dark gray crinkle paint with dark green accent color. Half off tag at St Vinnies meant I only paid $6.99 for this beauty. Some paint wear on the ribbon cover. I've reduced the skipping problem by loosening the draw string tension. Nice case. Steady, solid feel. It even came with a decent ribbon (although it's cotton and I can see why most have switched to nylon with all the type slug cleaning I've been doing). I put a no-skid mat on the table to keep it in place when typing.

The pounding typebar, having writ, moves on... unless there's a ding.
