Is branded "Smith-Corona" and "Silent-Super" (both with hyphens). Acquired from an Albuquerque resident via Craigslist. Was very filthy, required extensive cleaning and months of adjusting before it became a reliable machine. Has a wonderful typing action, ideal for stream-of-consciousness writing. Machine and holiday case still exude a faint unpleasant odor.

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.
