At first glance one would think late 60's. Quality seems very good and matching that of its predecessors. This one has a nice automatic space and a wide carriage hence the w in the serial. Note also unlike its only companion (as of 10/19) that it is not a "correcting" ribbon machine and still has a standard red/stencil/black selector.

A lover of the written word, I was bitten by the typewriter bug at the beginning of 2019 when I embarked on a Joyful Odyssey to track down a vintage Olympia SM 7/8/9, (I didn't know the model number at the time) that my mother had owned and which I had used to type my college applications in the late 1980's. I have acquired quite a number since, and have enjoyed learning about the history, mechanics, and true variety of these machines.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Deville Deluxe on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Deville Deluxe By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
