This was a free machine that was going to get thrown out. It had a jammed carriage and looked very bad.
I cleaned it up and got the carriage moving. I corrected interference from the tab set/clear system that had jammed the carriage.
The machine was missing the top cover plate, so I bought a replacement cover from an S-C Silent.
Serial number is located under the ribbon cover by the left ribbon spool.
Cleaned and lubricated, this is a wonderful typer. I love its solid touch and quiet operation. A keeper.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
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.
