1931 Smith Corona S-C Serial # 1004727 1931 Smith Corona S-C typewriter, Serial # 1004727 J Makoto Smith's 1931 Smith Corona S-C typewriter. 2020-05-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of J Makoto Smith: 1931 Smith Corona S-C Serial # 1004727 Found this S-C locally, works good, though it only has 2 tab storp, one being salvaged from a 5-Series Silent. The basic shape of the Smith-Coronas' tabulators didn't change, but the design sure did, as the older tab stop has 2 parts - the tabulator and a spring - while the never stop is a single die-cut piece. Not sure which stop I prefer, though I do know which one will be easier to make.

I collect working and usable typewriters that get, well, used.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona S-C on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona S-C By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
