1934 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 1S12590 1934 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 1S12590 Kenneth Kruschka's 1934 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2019-03-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 1934 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 1S12590 Built a cyborg from 4 or 5 parts units. She doesn't have a "touch selector" but my other 1934 Silent does, so I'm assuming that '34 was the first year of the feature. The paper bail rollers came from a 60's Coronet electric, draw string was used from an Olivetti, half the body (black painted parts) from a Corona Standard, the upper/lower case adjuster stops from a 50's Silent, Floating Shift type-guide from a 40's Clipper, etc. Update 3/8/19 I sold this typewriter, along with an Olivetti, to Robert from Fond Du Lac, WI..

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
