We have cleaned and serviced this Smith-Corona Silent from the 1950's. It is fully functioning and ready for all your typing needs. It's been fully serviced by us! Comes with case and new ribbon. We also replaced the drawstring to ensure it's in tip top shape.
This typewriter comes from a series that Smith-Corona first introduced in the mid 1930s. The Sterling, along with the Clipper, Silent, and Super Silent are all similar in appearance with a few differences in how the typewriter was finished out (the Super Silent has a few bells/whistles that the Silent doesn't have). This typewriter model is well known for it's reliability and was made right here in the USA.
This model would be perfect for any aspiring writers out there looking for a great machine to use daily. And YES, this machine is FULLY FUNCTIONAL, guaranteed!
Like many machines this age, it is showing some cosmetic wear (marks, scuffs, chips, etc). We tried to capture the wear in the photos.
Let us know if you have any questions.
We know how to properly adjust and lubricate these machines. Don't buy your typewriter from just anybody, buy it from our shop. We've been trained by a long-time typewriter technician and continue to learn and improve our craft. We hope you'll trust us with your typewriter needs.
