1949 Smith Corona Super-Speed Serial # 2A2239865 1949 Smith Corona Super-Speed typewriter, Serial # 2A2239865 John Abbott's 1949 Smith Corona Super-Speed typewriter. 2020-03-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 1949 Smith Corona Super-Speed Serial # 2A2239865 #1112. Pretty rough with some mechanical issues, but I picked it up relatively cheap from a semi-local source. I think I can get it back working with a reasonable amount of work. Not sure what to do about the paint, but it may look decent after a gentle cleaning.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.
