Smith Corona Silent 5S Series Manual Portable Typewriter with Case, 1950
Here is a wonderful Smith Corona Standard 5S Series portable manual typewriter in fully functioning condition with a brand new red and black ink ribbon ready to be used. This machine shows normal signs of wear and tear to be expected from a vintage typewriter including minor rust spots, some spots of discoloration on the paint, as well as some internal dust and residue. There is a slight but nearly indiscernible dent on the hood of the typewriter that does not affect functionality. The typewriter comes in its original hard covered carrying case. This typewriter was made in the USA.
Please see the last photo for a full type sample from this machine.

All typewriters sold by Memory Hole Vintage are fully functional and are sold with a brand new ink ribbon installed, unless otherwise noted. This means that all major functions work as expected and all keys type normally. As with most vintage typewriters, a key may stick or mistype occasionally, but that is to be expected of older machines. These typewriters have been cosmetically cleaned, but will include varying degrees of internal dust, scuffing, and other cosmetic imperfections. Please examine the photographs for a clear understanding of the machine you are buying. Happy typing!
