Vintage 1950s Smith Corona Sterling Typewriter - Matte Black with Glossy Stripes - Good Condition with Extra Ribbon

144.99

Really fantastic Smith Corona Sterling typewriter, in matte black with glossy stripes on the key cover and around the base of the typewriter. The Smith Corona Sterling is one of my favorite models of typewriter, for its smooth lines, ease of use and ease of maintenance. They also feel great to type on, especially this model with its thin snappy keys and smooth flow. Great look!

This typewriter is in very good cosmetic condition, with relatively little noticeable wear and age - very attractive machine! Mechanically, it does have a couple of condition issues to note. First, the back space function does not work well. If you press the back space key with force, it works, but it is preferable (and easier) just to manually move the carriage back a space. Second, the ribbon selector which determines which way the ribbon moves as you type, is not functioning, so the ribbon only moves from the left spool to the right. This does not affect the general function of the machine, but should be noted by the new owner. This machine also has a slight musty odor, as it was stored for quite some time. If kept in a ventilated area, this should ease up with time. Price reflects these condition issues.

Comes with original hardcase. Manual available for this typewriter here: http://www.machinesoflovinggrace.com/manuals/Smith-CoronaFloatingShiftmanual.pdf

Approximately 15 pounds. 

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