1950 Smith Corona Sterling

Serial #5A267092

Found it hiding in someone's antique booth. It was full of shavings and had disconnected typebars, amongst other things, but after some TLC, it works like a charm. I rather like it as a typewriter; its quite the workhorse! Though its color wouldn't be my first choice. FYI: the case was a bit ragged, so my wife and I gave it a whole new look. You can catch glimpses of it here and there.

Greetings from Fayetteville, AR! My happy, little collection has quickly grown to 4, from the 1958 Empire Aristocrat that was once used by my wife's father, uncles and aunts to learn to type with, to the 1950 Smith-Corona Sterling that was being sold as broken (until, of course, I was able to fix it), to the 1972 Remington Ten Forty that a local happily gave to me to breathe new life into. And now, I'm staring down my biggest challenge yet in a 1910 Royal Standard model 1! As someone who spends way too much time in front of the computer screen, it's nice to be able to step away and spend some free time giving these machines some much deserved TLC (typewriter love & care).
