1954 Smith Corona Sterling

Serial #5A 472232

I love the way the spring drum and the escapement are right out in the open on this machine!

Made in U.S.A. 12-pitch Courier font. Dark gray crinkle paint with dark green accent color. Half off tag at St Vinnies meant I only paid $6.99 for this beauty. Some paint wear on the ribbon cover. I've reduced the skipping problem by loosening the draw string tension. Nice case. Steady, solid feel. It even came with a decent ribbon (although it's cotton and I can see why most have switched to nylon with all the type slug cleaning I've been doing). I put a no-skid mat on the table to keep it in place when typing.

The pounding typebar, having writ, moves on... unless there's a ding.

Somebody must have habitually rested their palm on the ribbon cover to wear the paint off like this.

Made in U.S.A.

Ribbon reverse on the right side won't work. I'm not sure why yet.

I love the way the spring drum and the escapement are right out in the open on this machine!
