The Typewriter Database 1959 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A788618 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1959 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A788618 Purchased via Cragislist from a lady in Marion, IA on 12/1/2011 for $15.

It's got an unusually large font, (6 cpi), and is covered in ink stains and missing the logo. The lady told me she used this machine primarily to make stencils at her job.

I plan to repaint it dark blue, cast a new logo in clear resin, and install LEDs behind the logo.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010 and currently have about 70 machines in my possession. While I have my personal collection, I also clean up typewriters for sale and would like to learn to repair and restore them, too.
