1938 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 1A 29571 1938 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 1A 29571 Daniel Burgoyne's 1938 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2021-11-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Burgoyne: 1938 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 1A 29571 Photos will be updated after cleaning typewriter.

I named this typewriter Adélina in honour of its original owner who used it from 1939 to 1991. It was purchased in 1939 but is believed to have been manufactured before.

The owner, Madame Adélina Beauchemin, used this portable for business needs, bringing it with her while traveling by car, trains and airplane with her husband on his business trips in Northern Québec and Northern Ontario.

Purchased from Adélina's granddaughter who had care of it from 1991 to November 2021.

Made in Canada. QWERTY French Canada keyboard with French key legends. Elite typeface. Original square case in good condition.

Bonjour! I am from the region of Montreal, Quebec and moved to Ottawa, Ontario in 1992.

Amateur watchmaker and machinist, I love anything mechanical, hydraulic or electric. I have restored American and Canadian clocks and small lathes, milling machines and a jig bore.

Most of my typewriters have Canadian-French Qwerty keyboards, with some exception for rare finds.
