1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A-886416 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A-886416 Mark Schrad's 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2022-10-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A-886416 I got this alpine blue Smith-Corona Sterling from a fellow collector in Baltimore, MD, in October of 2022. When cleaning it, the escapement mechanism fell out of the bottom, so I had to get another 5A to figure out how to reconnect it all. Types just great now, even without the logo.
