1960 Tower Tabulator Serial # 5CT469557T 1960 Tower Tabulator typewriter, Serial # 5CT469557T Mike Green's 1960 Tower Tabulator typewriter. 2022-06-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mike Green: 1960 Tower Tabulator Serial # 5CT469557T Somewhat rare "pinky/beige" Tower tabulator, a Smith Corona 5 series made for Sears in 1960 only. I've added this second one to my collection. The small atomic logo is actually an SR logo, for Sears and Roebuck. It came in the tan, tweedy-look fiberglass "holiday" case. I cleaned the typewriter and it is now a very good machine. In fact, most Smith Corona series 5 machines I've owned have been solid typers with few repairs needed other than cleaning.

So many machines to explore. Someday I'll narrow it down to one machine and do some real work.



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Tower Tabulator on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Tower Serial Number page and the Tower Tabulator By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
