Smith-Corona Silent 5S Series Portable Typewriter with Case, 1952
Here is a beautiful vintage Smith Corona Silent portable typewriter manufactured in the United States of America in 1952. You know you can't go wrong with a Smith Corona Silent model, because its one of typewriter aficionado Tom Hanks' most recommended machines! This one is a fine example and types very smoothly in both black and green from a brand new ink ribbon that comes preinstalled. This floating shift typewriter has a dark grey-green color and two tone green keys. It is in good cosmetic condition but does show signs of wear such as paint loss, dust, some very minor rust. However, it types normally and all functions are working properly. This machine includes a convenient carrying case.
Serial #: 5S419393
All typewriters sold by Memory Hole Vintage are fully functional and are sold with a brand new ink ribbon preinstalled. This means that all major functions work as expected and all keys type normally, unless otherwise noted. 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!
