1949 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 5C119639 1949 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter, Serial # 5C119639 Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1949 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter. 2018-04-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1949 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 5C119639 We call it, 'Vlad the Dyslexic'. Why? Because this was once a Ukrainian keyboarded Clipper, sold in Canada. The hypothesis is that it was sold to a Ukrainian immigrant in the prairies and eventually wound up in a consignment store on Vancouver Island. However, the slugs have been re-arranged into something of a QWERTY layout, but awaits some donor slugs from an appropriate parts Super-5.
