1938 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 2A 46896 1938 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 2A 46896 Ton Sison's 1938 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2020-08-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ton Sison: 1938 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 2A 46896 The Corona Sterling Floating Shift typewriter embodies the late deco style called "Streamline Moderne." Graceful curves, liquid gloss burgundy color, and an elegant return lever make this machine a sight for sore eyes. Typing feel is snappy, which I believe is typical of Smith-Corona machines, even down to the later models.
