1955 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 5C 244030 1955 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter, Serial # 5C 244030 John Munroe's 1955 Smith Corona Clipper typewriter. 2017-10-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1955 Smith Corona Clipper Serial # 5C 244030 "Stonefish"

Nice quiet dependable typer with beautiful case. Unfortunately seller put it in upside down during shipping so the body is gashed up a bit. One of my favorites and I haven't even cleaned it up properly yet. Can't wait to try a Sterling with the two-colored keys and tab!

Tiny elite font, virtually identical to that of my Hermes 3000.

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
