1950 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 257754 1950 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 257754 Agustín Doncelar's 1950 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2019-07-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Agustín Doncelar: 1950 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 257754 This is my daughter's typewriter, made in Canada with French keys. Alas: the accents circumflex & grave have the wrong slug (see the typeface sample). I'm not sure if this was a later replacement or an error in its manufacture. Either way, it's a bit of a disappointment, and I'm on the hunt for the right slug in order to correct the error. (If anyone has a SC they use as parts, I'd love to hear from you!)
