1958 Smith Corona Silent Super Serial # 5T 738742X 1958 Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter, Serial # 5T 738742X John Munroe's 1958 Smith Corona Silent Super typewriter. 2016-08-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1958 Smith Corona Silent Super Serial # 5T 738742X "Stardust"

This sweet desert sands Silent Super types nicely even in its filthy and old-ribboned condition. Can't wait to see how it will perform once it's cleaned up! Looks like bird strikes on the portside canopy call for a snazzy Munroe gold sticker to cover things up. Number 49!! Nice pica as Paul Musgrave kindly pointed out. Love this typer!!

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.
