1957 Smith Corona Silent Super Serial # 5T 406989X 1957 Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter, Serial # 5T 406989X Mark Petersen's 1957 Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter. 2018-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1957 Smith Corona Silent Super Serial # 5T 406989X Found at a Goodwill in Salem, VA for only $10, one of my better finds of late this is the green colored machine which may be hard to tell because the green is more subtle than the blue or the pink. It was filthy when I got it but cleaned up nicely and is mostly clean and works like a champ. It has that smallish typeface often seen on Smith Coronas and has been fitted with an appropriately green ribbon.
Sold to JP for a cross country road trip and because he is looking to collect all the colors.
