1929 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 934242B 10 1929 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter, Serial # 934242B 10 James Grooms's 1929 L.C. Smith 8 typewriter. 2024-05-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Grooms: 1929 L.C. Smith 8 Serial # 934242B 10 A few days away from becoming a flower pot like her Underwood partner. A quick extraction and the Alien seed status was aborted. External cosmetics were on par for a decades long display piece cleaned with whatever was on hand at the moment. The paper table bore the brunt of it. The upside was no internal rust and after the full arsenal of polishing weapons she looks pretty good.

The office standard with balls of steel!!!!

A few days away from becoming a flower pot like her Underwood partner. A quick extraction and the Alien seed status was aborted. External cosmetics were on par for a decades long display piece cleaned with whatever was on hand at the moment. The paper table bore the brunt of it. The upside was no internal rust and after the full arsenal of polishing weapons she looks pretty good.

As with many, the bug is back there somewhere due to an Underwood No. 5. My grandfather was on a small town school board and used one for this. My parents had a yellow Royal Safari that I used to index card everything, including a beer can collection. Collection syndrome clue! The long dormant tic was activated when my neighbors left a Remington Quiet Riter on the curb when they moved in circa 2010, Yes a believe it or not story is next, when a Hermes 3000 comes home with the girlfriend from work for free. Yes, free! From there the addiction is full steam. And yes, I now have a No. 5. Typewriters are the perfect blend of using one's technical skills, history and functional purpose.
