1941 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 3S 95576 1941 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 3S 95576 Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp's 1941 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2021-07-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Aaron Friedrich Lotar Rolf Klamp: 1941 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 3S 95576 A sturdy and lightly operating example of an American Typewriter, made in a time, when Typewriter production had bin shrunked to benefit war efforts.

Also here, I love itĀ“s patina, that tells a little of itĀ“s intense use. Where and when I donĀ“t know, but the seller speculated it couldĀ“ve bin used in a military related administration, due to the number "98" at itĀ“s case.
Sadly all tab-stops are missing.

To optimize a occasionally not engaging spacebar, I attached some shrinktube onto the lever that is touching the escapement. I could also have done this via bending this lever, but this works flawlessly, and is therefore ok for me.
