1946 Smith Corona Sterling

Serial #4A225530

The machine that started a collection.

I've had other typewriters - I learned to type on some unmemorable machine - but this was the first one to open my eyes to the inherent beauty in their design, the subtle differences in their performance, and the fascinating history behind their evolution.

I bought the Sterling on a whim, as a novelty meant to provide a little fun, after all, it had been years - too many - since I had last used a typewriter. However, with the first page spun around its platen, everything about how I viewed the typewriter changed. It was because of this Sterling that I now use a typewriter for the first drafts of everything I write.
