1906 L.C. Smith 2 Serial # 19901-2 1906 L.C. Smith 2 typewriter, Serial # 19901-2 Richard Polt's 1906 L.C. Smith 2 typewriter. 2014-11-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1906 L.C. Smith 2 Serial # 19901-2 This is a nice example of an early L.C. Smith with pinstripes and a decal of prancing horses.

On these early machines, the shift moves the typebasket up rather than down, as on later ones. The return lever is on the right. But many features of this design endured for decades and decades on L. C. Smith and Smith-Corona standards.
