This is my newest addition, which prompted me to join this website. He's in fantastic condition, apart from some wear on the back decal. He has Elite 12 pitch typeface and a newly recovered platen. He's gray, though I haven't identified the precise name of the original paint.
Status: Typewriter Hunter
I hope you enjoy this little introduction, written just for you. I'm very new to the typoshpere and collecting world, but not so new to the love of typewriters. One of my first sensory memories is from when I was four years old or so. I was sitting next to my Dad watching All The President's Men. The beautiful symphony of the typewriter-filled newsroom struck a chord in me that day, and still does.
My first typewriter was a 1964 (I thought she was a '63 until I checked out this site) Smith Corona Sterling, hence the username. She'll always have a special place because she was my first, but I've recently ventured into the world of (minimal) collecting with the recent acquisition of a 1955 Royal HH. And boy, am I hooked. I hope to learn a lot here, meet great people, and further my pursuit of the ultimate resource: knowledge.
Thanks for stopping by!
(PS- Yes, I also love horse racing!)
