197X Smith Corona Sterling Cartridge Serial # 3LRL196679 197X Smith Corona Sterling Cartridge typewriter, Serial # 3LRL196679 John Abbott's 197X Smith Corona Sterling Cartridge typewriter. 2020-03-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Abbott: 197X Smith Corona Sterling Cartridge Serial # 3LRL196679 #1120. I searched and searched and could not figure out when this was manufactured. On the back it says it was manufactured in Sinapore and on the tag on the bottom, it says that it is a Model 3L (which is also what the serial number prefix confirms). I know these later models tended to be manufactured for a few years, so I am guessing it was manufacturered between 1973 and 1975, maybe 1976.

I started my collection back in 2017 when I found a 1993 Brother WP-1250, which was very close to the typewriter I owned and used to write letters home while I was stationed in Korea serving in the US Air Force (I later discovered it was most likely the Brother WP-1150, so I picked that up). In 2018, my wife took me to one of the local antique store and I saw an old typewriter that caught my eye. My wife purchased it for me for Christmas (a 1932 Royal 10). My wife and I decided to limit my collection to 5 typewriters, so I need to sell off my surplus.
