1947 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 4C214133 1947 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter, Serial # 4C214133 Mark Schrad's 1947 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter. 2021-01-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1947 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 4C214133 I'd always wanted a Smith-Corona Clipper like this 1947 model with the little airplane logo, so when I found one at Herman Price's typewriter gathering in West Virginia in 2019, I gladly snapped it up. It was rusty and mildewy, but after a lot of cleaning and de-rusting, it types like a dream, and surprisingly quiet. I enjoy grading on it, with a blue/green ribbon.
