The Typewriter Database 198X Smith Corona SL 500 Serial # 5ACC 2012898 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ian Brumfield: 198X Smith Corona SL 500 Serial # 5ACC 2012898 This is a Smith-Corona SL 500 daisywheel electric. These electrics are not included in the database, so I am assuming sometime during the 80s was when this was made. There are two stickers inside with numbers on them, and either of them could be the serial number. They are as follows: SR 04702 and 5ACC 2012898 . The underside says that this model is 5A, but the case says SL 500. Since no information is available on these, I'll stick with SL 500 for now. This machine was my first typewriter!

UPDATE: (9/3/14) From the model number moulded into he plastic (5A), I will go with the serial #5ACC 2012898. Also, I got this machine on February 5th 2012.

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.
