1935 Smith Corona Standard Serial # 1C 6334 1935 Smith Corona Standard typewriter, Serial # 1C 6334 Javier Vazquez del Olmo's 1935 Smith Corona Standard typewriter. 2017-05-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 1935 Smith Corona Standard Serial # 1C 6334 This is not a frequent machine around here, and I consider myself fortunate because here it is, in good condition and just waiting for a decent ribbon because everything else is alright.

A good bonus is the Spanish keyboard, with the Ñ, ´ and ¿ symbols apart from the familiar layout. Besides, the keytops and the general shapes of the machine make it really elegant.

There´s something that puzzles me: the weird serial number. I don´t understand it and I have no idea how to date the machine. Anyone can help?

Looks great on the desk, and performs equally great. A nice addition!

--- UPDATE ---

Refiled it, now correctly, as Smith Corona Standard. Looking more closely, the s/n is really low for that model...

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.

A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
