1950 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 250235 1950 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A 250235 Jessica Winkowski's 1950 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2019-12-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1950 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 250235 One of my first two repainting attempts. This one turned out lovely; the pictures don't do the color and sparkle justice. The repaint was done by commission for a friend, and the typewriter was a Christmas present for their sister. I didn't quite hit the requested color - "deep green with a hint of blue" - but it still looks pretty darn good. I used a color shift paint that was green/purple over a hunter green base coat.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).
