1928 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 845093 10 1928 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter, Serial # 845093 10 Michael Hoehne's 1928 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter. 2015-07-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1928 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 845093 10 Wonderful working condition, although the paint is 15% chipped. Came with a fairly fresh ribbon on the proprietary Smith-Corona spools. The decimal tab system works well for 0 through 4 digits, as designed, so apparently it was not marketed to hedge fund offices.

This one was brought to my door by a guy who knows I like typewriters; not the first time that has happened.

The serial number ends in [space]10, which I’m pretty sure refers to the platen width.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
