1949 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 122952 1949 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 5S 122952 rock harris's 1949 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2017-10-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of rock harris: 1949 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S 122952 An ebay find, but the lady lived close to me.

Stupendous condition. Everything except for the paint scratch on the top is perfect. Even the rubber is supple and pliable. And almost no dust/dirt. I don't know where it was stored, but it was exactly what it needed. Fine typer too.

Possible favorite.

Gotta hit up the list to find out when it's made. The DB starts at 144K for the 5S and mine is 122K.

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....
