1906 L.C. Smith 1 Serial # 1720 1906 L.C. Smith 1 typewriter, Serial # 1720 Mark Schrad's 1906 L.C. Smith 1 typewriter. 2021-11-04 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1906 L.C. Smith 1 Serial # 1720 I wasn't really looking for any more machines, but there's just something special about a "No. 1." This one came from Brookhaven, PA, in October of 2021, and was a seized-up, rusty mess when I got it. I asked the owner for background information on it, and all he could say was that he sold a tractor to a guy who was $100 short, so he threw this in to sweeten the deal. Okay.
