1959 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A788618 1959 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A788618 Jessica Winkowski's 1959 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2019-01-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jessica Winkowski: 1959 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A788618 Purchased on 12/1/2011

It's got an unusually large font, (6 cpi), and is covered in ink stains and missing the logo. The lady told me she used this machine primarily to make stencils at her job.

I plan to repaint it dark blue, cast a new logo in clear resin, and install LEDs behind the logo.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010. I currently have 100+ machines in my possession. A little over half of them reside in my "personal" collection, while the rest are machines I intend to clean up for sale, or are long-term restoration projects (I'm looking at you, Olivers and Foxes!).
