1947 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A239711X 1947 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 4A239711X Paul Kalburgi's 1947 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2022-02-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Kalburgi: 1947 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A239711X Gorgeous looking machine, though very heavy. The keys have a bit of a 'sway' to them, too much movement for everyday use. I find some of the slugs are quite sharp and cut the page also. Picked up from Facebook Marketplace in Auckland, NZ for $80.

I'm a British writer currently living in Auckland, New Zealand. You'll find more about me and my work at paulkalburgi.com. I'm currently the owner of six typewriters, looking forward to adding my collection to the database and connecting with fellow enthusiasts. I post lots of typewritten writing quotes on my Instagram (@PaulKalburgi) if that's your jam.
