1955 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A541409A 1955 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A541409A Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters's 1955 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2018-03-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Plante and Doole-Fisher Typewriters: 1955 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A541409A By the time this Super-5 bodied Sterling was built, the internal design had effectively reached the peak of refinement. This example is peculiar, given that it has the type-bar cover and paper-bail from a Super, and white function keys from a 1958 or 1959 S.C. product. Sterlings had manually-set tabulator and several other refinements over the base Clipper.
