1958 Smith Corona Sterling

Found at a thriftstore. A couple of minor scraps on the paint, but otherwise in very good condition. Needed to be cleaned: someone had spooled it with the ribbon that has the white erasable half where the red should be. It had long since dried, crack, and dropped into the machine. Also had to twink a few bent parts to get the margin release working. But it's a 100% now. Actually quite nice to type on, and pretty fast too. Hardcase was marked UAW 492, which I assume was the local United Auto Workers union.

Picture makes it look more white than it actually is. It's more sand colored in reality.
