1909 Smith Premier 10-A Serial # 27425 1909 Smith Premier 10-A typewriter, Serial # 27425 Johannes Melen's 1909 Smith Premier 10-A typewriter. 2022-11-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Johannes Melen: 1909 Smith Premier 10-A Serial # 27425 When I was supposed to "just by" another typewriter from a elderly man, he asked if I wanted to have this one for free. I was hesitant since it was very heavy and would take alot of space at home. But I will never regret taking this beautiful machine home! I always tell visitors about where the word "upper case" letter originated from using the SMith Premier 10-A as a perfect eample of this.

I'm also SO amazed how they technically build in the tab function on this typewriter with 4 different personal settings. This 10-A has Scandinavian (Swedish keyboard) wooden keys and some were so worn I touched them up with a marker. I left the space bar untouched as It's signature of use all the way back from 1909.
