1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 796099 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 5A 796099 Jon Olivarez's 1960 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2016-03-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jon Olivarez: 1960 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 5A 796099 Smith-Coronas are generally great typers and this machine, nicknamed "The Hulk", was no exception. The case for this machine got some cool points for being snazzy, but the biggest win was the feet. Smith-Corona didn't fool with special, proprietary screw-ins: just rubber squares that squeeze into prongs.

Sold to a young wife for her husband who always wanted a typewriter.
