1946 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A194700 1946 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 4A194700 Emily Tillman's 1946 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2022-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Emily Tillman: 1946 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A194700 Bought this in an online auction with local pick-up. Yay, no shipping! But...... it is being strangled by its own drawband, very sad. :-( Hopefully I can at least untangle this tongue-tied beauty!

1/8/2022 UPDATE: Drawband is back in position! She could still use a tune-up, though.

Bitten by typewriter bug during childhood. Life-long condition. No cure. Only symptom management. Happy to be here.
