1972 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 6MSE 132496 1972 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, Serial # 6MSE 132496 Gerald Ambrose's 1972 Smith Corona Sterling typewriter. 2017-09-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1972 Smith Corona Sterling Serial # 6MSE 132496 This is the first typewriter that I ever collected. I got it as a birthday gift several years ago.

I have only seen one other Smith-Corona Sterling from this era in a collection online.



Update 11/24/2016: Since posting this gallery I have seen more of these late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterlings.


Update - 8/7/2017 - Left the collection. Sold with four others to a teacher who intends to show them to his students and have them use them with supervision.

I said good-bye to another old friend. While there was some sentiment, I hardly ever used it, so I am glad to see it moved on to someone who will give it use.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
