1957 Smith Corona Silent-Super

Serial #5T 477968X

I bought a top cover from a S-C Silent to protect the typewriter from dirt and damage.

This was a free machine that was going to get thrown out. It had a jammed carriage and looked very bad.

I cleaned it up and got the carriage moving. I corrected interference from the tab set/clear system that had jammed the carriage.

The machine was missing the top cover plate, so I bought a replacement cover from an S-C Silent.

Basket shift.

Serial number is located under the ribbon cover by the left ribbon spool.

Cleaned and lubricated, this is a wonderful typer. I love its solid touch and quiet operation. A keeper.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
