1926 L.C. Smith 8

Serial #623680 - 10

A beautiful LC Smith that I serviced/repaired. The owner says it was bought/used by his mother before his birth in 1940. Most likely, she bought the machine new and it is a one-owner.

A superb, un-restored example. Decals are nearly perfect and the machine appears to have original paint. Most bright metal in good shape with very little rust. Lettering is gold. Very few nicks on it.

I love mechanical things and have tinkered with manual and electric typewriters since my teens. I have always been fascinated by the IBM Selectric, but it was later in life that I finally got my hands on one to explore. I learned to repair/restore them and suddenly I have several of them. I don't really consider myself a collector, but rather a restorer. I enjoy bringing old machines back to usable condition and then pass them on to other people to use and enjoy.
