This example shows the lowest serial number of all the # 1 Smith Premiers present in the Typewriter Database. Is complete, with all the keys present (and there are so many there, because capitol letters have their special keys, no carriage shift not segment shift present here!
As a bonus, the hard to find brush crank is present here, as is the original metal/wooden box with the brand lettering and all the front/rear locks in operative condition.
Lyman, Hurlburt, Monroe and Wilbert Smith. were gun manufacturers prior to enter the typewriter industry. IMHO this is the reason why the lateral panels in this model looks like the mechanism box in a shotgun (I add a photo of a decorated shotgun mechanism box, to allow the comparison).
This impressive and heavy typewriter is now on its 130° birthday, and looks impossible to hold her in your hands without thinking about the letters, messages, et al that were written by her during his long service life.
