1949 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S152755 1949 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 5S152755 Geoff Flash's 1949 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2018-06-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1949 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S152755 #107

No ribbon or spools, or the name at the top of the typewriter... What's up with that? All the other years have the word "Silent" at the top. (After taking the pictures, I notice the back piece is missing.) Looking forward to getting a ribbon in this one and seeing if it types as well as some others have claimed.

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane"...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
