This Smith-Corona in Sears clothing has seen a few miles. Stuffed in the corner of its travel case was a receipt with the name of the person I bought the machine from on it. The thrift shop receipt showed that he had himself bought the machine used, in 1974, in Honolulu, Hawaii. He now lives in Toronto, Canada, which is where the machine currently resides.
There was one other thing about the receipt that struck me: Forty years ago he paid $15 for the typewriter, which was the exact amount he sold it to me for.

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