Beautiful Antique L.C. Smith No. 5 Typewriter - Working Condition

164.99

This is a beautiful antique L.C. Smith #5 typewriter, in well-worn but beautiful condition. This is a big, burly and beautiful machine that was built to last - and has. I love the curved arch elements of the design and its unusual right-hand side carriage return.

This is in working condition, though notably its key caps are mostly worn off on all but the top row of keys. It does type well, however, and its condition is repairable if interested. Please see example of typeface in pic #7. I think it's actually quite attractive as it is - looks like history! Price reflects condition.

Cosmetically, this typewriter is in lovely, crusty condition - still quite good for its age. It has lost most of its gloss, though logos still look great. It has been cleaned and waxed to bring out its original characteristics.

It is approximately 12"L x 14"W x 14"H and about 35 pounds. No case. Owner's manual is available here: http://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/LCSmith8manual.pdf

I make good faith efforts to describe my items accurately. Please look at photos carefully and fully read the descriptions prior to purchase, and feel free to contact me at any time with any questions you might have, or if you would like to see any additional photos.

Machine is HEAVY! Shipping cost reflects that this typewriter is 30+ pounds and will require extra care in packing to ensure a safe delivery.

I base my typewriter prices on condition of typewriter, and desirability factors including color, condition, typeface, and rarity.

I do my best to estimate shipping costs - if you would like to combine with other items or just do a free local pickup, just let me know before you purchase any items. If the difference between what I request for postage and what the actual cost is happens to be more than $2, I will refund the difference. If requesting international shipment, please contact me beforehand and I can estimate costs to your country.

Let me know if you have any questions and thank you!
