1943 Smith Corona Standard Serial # 3C301175 1943 Smith Corona Standard typewriter, Serial # 3C301175 Geoff Flash's 1943 Smith Corona Standard typewriter. 2021-09-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1943 Smith Corona Standard Serial # 3C301175 #563

Going by the type sample, I think this was a mill...? I'd like to know why the "C" has the flourish that it does (upper & lower case).

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane"...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
