Smith-Corona Silent Super (Alpine Blue) Typewriter
Description: A solid and sought after typewriter in beautiful alpine blue. The silent super was Smith-Corona's higher model of typewriter and has all the bells and whistles you could want in a typewriter.
This is the perfect typewriter gift for the writing, author, or vintage enthusiast in your life.
This model of typewriter is Tom Hanks' 'Desert Island' typewriter as he states in the California Typewriter documentary. He believes it has the right geometry for efficient typing without having to work your fingers too hard when implementing proper typing technique.
This typewriter mechanics have been disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, chemically cleaned and lubricated. The outer casing was carefully cleaned to not rub off the very fine crinkle finish these machines have. Once complete, the whole thing was reassembled, tested and tuned up!
It is being sold with its case and a new black/red ribbon installed.
