L.C. Smith started making the No. 2 in 1904. This one is an early example having
been made in 1907. This one is Serial #38324-2. After 1907 a backspace key
was added.
This example is in remarkable working condition. It has been cleaned and
serviced by one of the last remaining typewriter repair shops on the West Coast,
Ace Typewriter.
The No. 2's were one of the last typewriters to have been hand pinstriped.
It seems pin striping on carriages was in decline and this was work that they took on.
The left spool still has the original pin striping on it (which is rare in that they were often replaced). The right ribbon spool is a 40's replacement.
Much of the original pin striping is present but fades off both on the left and right side by
the space bar, where normal use would have worn it off.
There is also wear to the black enamel paint on each corner beside the space bar.

The platen has been restored to its original blue. All the tabs function and have
been cleaned to regain most of the original brightness. It is unfortunate
that the middle horse in the logo is missing some of its paint and
this is reflected in the price that we are offering the typewriter at. It has a new ribbon.
Though not extremely rare, they are rare in this condition.
Please ask questions and we will try our best to answer them.
If you'd like to see additional photographs, please contact me and I'll send you some.


Your typewriter will be carefully packed and shipped parcel post with delivery confirmation
and insurance in the US. International shipping is available, however, due to the
weight of the typewriter, shipping will be expensive. Please contact me for a quote.
