1958 Smith Corona Super Serial # 5T-595471 1958 Smith Corona Super typewriter, Serial # 5T-595471 Marina Garrison's 1958 Smith Corona Super typewriter. 2022-03-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Marina Garrison: 1958 Smith Corona Super Serial # 5T-595471 Picked up a Value Village thrift store in Canada for $25. Sticky keys are now fixed. Came with case. 12cpi elite typeface. Typewriter is a joy to write with, extremely snappy - nothing comes between your thoughts and the paper. Bliss! Some discussion as to whether this is a green or grey model (thanks to William Lester!). It certainly is not the celery/spring green I see in the later models with white keys. It is more like a khaki green and contrasts from the grey space bar. Came with a tweed and brown case which is a holiday case (i.e. the typewriter mechanism is removable). The top of the case is removable.

It's a holiday case! No it's not the hard Samonite style but the typewriter mechanic is removable.
