We have cleaned and serviced this Smith-Corona Sterling from the 1950's. It is fully functioning and ready for all your typing needs. It's been fully serviced by us! Comes with carrying case and new ribbon.
This typewriter comes from a series that Smith-Corona first introduced in the mid 1930s. The Clipper, along with the Sterling, 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, etc.). 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! A new draw string will be installed before the machine goes to its new home too.
Make sure and check out all the photos as they are part of the description. Email us with any questions you might have.
The carrying case does show cosmetic wear. Some of the material has been re-glued since it had come loose. Case is sturdy and functional.
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.
