It's the elusive Enterprise!

It's a pretty ordinary Smith-Corona, but the paint is an unusual deep green wrinkle paint, and some features may be simplified. There's no tabulator brake, and the carrying case uses a system that holds the typewriter in place with a few simple metal pieces and a plastic piece that pushes down the front of the typewriter.

This machine is missing the white Smith-Corona logo that originally poked out through the cut-out name.
