1948 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A244321 1948 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 4A244321 Jonathan Sprung's 1948 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2023-12-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Sprung: 1948 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 4A244321 I bought this machine at auction packaged with a 1927 Royal Model 'P' (P10668. I had originally wanted this one more, until I realized the Royal was so rare. This machine types well, save for the platen, which only free-spins despite my repeated best efforts. If I got this running properly, it would be one of my favourite machines.

I have been collecting typewriters all my life, starting with a 1980's Brother Charger 11 (which I no longer have, but have replaced with an identical machine). I have well over 60 typewriters now, with a few rare portables. Some are interesting or odd, but most of mine are common machines.

My wife and I have made a deal, that I can keep buying typewriters if she can keep buying shoes. Fair enough! *shrugs*
