1961 Smith Corona Enterprise Serial # E5A 13854 1961 Smith Corona Enterprise typewriter, Serial # E5A 13854 Richard Polt's 1961 Smith Corona Enterprise typewriter. 2015-04-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1961 Smith Corona Enterprise Serial # E5A 13854 It's the elusive Enterprise!

It's a pretty ordinary Smith-Corona, but the paint is an unusual deep green wrinkle paint, and some features may be simplified. There's no tabulator brake, and the carrying case uses a system that holds the typewriter in place with a few simple metal pieces and a plastic piece that pushes down the front of the typewriter.

This machine is missing the white Smith-Corona logo that originally poked out through the cut-out name.
