1948 Smith Corona Super Speed Serial # 2A2212862-11 1948 Smith Corona Super Speed typewriter, Serial # 2A2212862-11 Richard Polt's 1948 Smith Corona Super Speed typewriter. 2018-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1948 Smith Corona Super Speed Serial # 2A2212862-11 Essentially it's the same old L. C. Smith in a bulbous grey shell and jolly green keys. But I like it! Came from a shop in Indiana that was giving away all its old machines. I refurbished it and it went to a young woman who bought it at The Urban Legend Institute.
