1951 Smith Corona Sterling

Serial #5A368583

Michigan antique mall purchase. Note with machine said "professionally serviced and cleaned and new ribbon. Came with case. Typed well. Type specimen bears out the note. At the mall when I examined it, I pressed one key and didn't see any ink. Turns out the ribbon was not put through the ribbon vibrator--I corrected that at home. SOLD to a friend 16Oct2017.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
