1915 Smith Premier 10 Serial # SH50181 1915 Smith Premier 10 typewriter, Serial # SH50181 Anastasia Sokolova's 1915 Smith Premier 10 typewriter. 2020-09-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Anastasia Sokolova: 1915 Smith Premier 10 Serial # SH50181 I got this typewriter in poor condition: some parts were missing and there was rust, as well as the inscriptions were partially damaged. I was faced with a question that often torments collectors - to restore the typewriter or preserve its appearance. I decided that this machine, which survived the reform of the Russian language and further not quite careful attitude, does not deserve to look bad either. I manually restored the base color and lettering to gold. Further restoration is likely to continue.

Anastasia Sokolova's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 14

My name is Anastasia and I am from Moscow, Russia. The collection of typewriters was a childhood dream of mine, to which I returned as an adult. My first car as a child was the Optima M16 with an oversized bottom bracket. The collection now includes 12 typewriters. I am mainly interested in cars until 1930, but I also acquire more recent years. I consider Underwood Standard the pearl of my collection and the most ideal machine in the world!
