1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A160116 1949 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A160116 Mark Petersen's 1949 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2016-11-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1949 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A160116 This was a well spent $25 I almost didn't spend because these machines are pretty unremarkable. Except of course when you find a really good one like this one. Drawband discount, easy fix, and then it was a really great typewriter I expect to hang on to and use for many years.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
