1913 L.C. Smith 5 Serial # 184XXX-5 1913 L.C. Smith 5 typewriter, Serial # 184XXX-5 Gerald Ambrose's 1913 L.C. Smith 5 typewriter. 2017-06-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1913 L.C. Smith 5 Serial # 184XXX-5 Spotted, non-working, at an antique store that I frequent. Not in bad shape overall, but not worth the $125 asking price. I thought it would be a good source for parts for my 1912 LC Smith 5, but I would have to get it for a lot less.

I took a picture of the Serial number but I cannot find it now, I remember the first three digits, which should put it in the 1913 range.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
