1953 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S437889 1953 Smith Corona Silent typewriter, Serial # 5S437889 Michael Bartelt's 1953 Smith Corona Silent typewriter. 2021-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 1953 Smith Corona Silent Serial # 5S437889 When I'm going to be sitting at the typewriter for multiple hours - over multiple days in a row - bringing a longer manuscript to final fruition, THIS typewriter is my go-to. When wrapping up the last three drafts of a chapbook manuscript a couple months back, my Silent became a physical and spiritual extension of self. She may not be too pretty, but she's faithful. Alongside my Studio 44, Arrow/Quiet DeLuxe, and SM-3, this machine stands as a preferred favorite for everyday use.
