1951 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A340244 1951 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A340244 Mitchell Dayton's 1951 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2024-05-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mitchell Dayton: 1951 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A340244 Another recent addition. Didn't need another Smith Corona manual, but my Tower is elite, so why not have a pica machine too? This ones nicer cosmetically than the Tower I own is, and I paid a criminally low price for it. Only downside is its in the quite drab chocolate brown color scheme,; probably the least attractive color these came in. Types nice though, and that's what really matters, isn't it? Platen is pretty hard, but I don't tend to use pica machines a great deal anyway. -Update- Machine was handed off to TB Writers Plus to find a new home...
