Kennedy, my 1953 Silent-Super, obtained in a trade with Magic Margin for an Olivetti 21. Notable for its 6-pitch Sight-Ease No. 47 typeface, which is much bigger than most Orator typefaces, thus the name Kennedy.
The escapement, set to advance for the large typeface, tends to jerk the machine much more violently than usual and it travels badly, even though the feet aren't bad. Still a smooth typer, it's like driving a truck on a country road compared to the sports-car smoothness of an Elite typeface Silent-Super.
Update: now it's in Bill Wahl's collection (:

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Silent Super on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Silent Super By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
