1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A-829308 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A-829308 Mark Schrad's 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2023-05-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Schrad: 1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A-829308 I got this 1960 SC Sterling in seafoam green from a fellow typewriter collector in Ontario, NY in May 2023. It needed some work--the lid logo needed to be reattached, disconnected linkages needed to be reconnected, and in the case of the "T" letter, the linkage clip needed to be JB Welded, in addition to the usual full service cleaning and delousing. A nice typer!
