"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed." - Ernest Hemingway


This typewriter has a great mid century office look and feel. It is a drab gray color with white keys, some chrome embellishments, and a burnt orange case. Overall, the typewriter is in decent working condition. As the name proposes, it is fairly quiet (as manual typewriters go). All the keys are functional, with the exception of the "f" which sticks frequently and appears to just need some lubrication. The carriage operates smoothly. The left dial for feeding paper is partially broken (see photo) but is still functional - the case was probably forced closed at some point in its history with the carriage positioned too far to the left. The typewriter could use some general cleaning, but this could be a very useful working machine with just a bit of elbow grease!

This typewriter bears a serial number of H65432L and was manufactured in the USA. The Smith-Corona Silent-Super was only manufactured in 1958 and the early part of 1959. This is probably due to the fact that the company introduced its first electric portable in 1958 and the electrics quickly grew in popularity. It's interesting and nostalgic to look at this typewriter and consider it was one of the last of its kind!

Smith-Corona stopped manufacturing typewriters altogether in 2005. The company still exists and now focuses its efforts on ribbons and thermal technology.
