1967 Smith Corona Super Sterling Serial # 6SS 262150 1967 Smith Corona Super Sterling typewriter, Serial # 6SS 262150 Paul Seitz's 1967 Smith Corona Super Sterling typewriter. 2018-07-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Seitz: 1967 Smith Corona Super Sterling Serial # 6SS 262150 I especially like machines from the early 1960's to late 60's/early 70's, i.e., dating from the time when I did a great deal of typing. I like machines that type well, are durably built, and have lots of well engineered, easy to use mechanical features - easy tab set/clear, easy margin set, a nice robust return lever, and a solid and reliable feel. This machine is quick and light but still feels strong and durable.

After too many rapid cross country moves, I realized suddenly that my c. 1964 Hermes 3000 was missing - lost or stolen at some point in a move. I'd bought that machine new from a shop as I entered high school, did all my homework on it, typed all my college research papers and my Master's thesis on it, but gradually used it less and less over the years. Still, the sudden realization that it was gone felt like a really significant loss, which puzzled me. Wondering why I was so moved by the loss of something I hadn't actually used in years, I began to get more and more interested in typewriters and the many layers of stories each seems to accumulate. I started to learn a little - just enough to have a chance to find some good machines that I can afford, as I gradually try to understand the (apparently, important) place of the typewriter in my soul.
