Here is a wonderful Smith Corona Sterling 5A Series manual portable typewriter in Smith Corona's Alpine Blue color in its original case and in fully functioning condition with a brand new red and black ink ribbon installed and 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 and chipping on the paint, as well as some internal dust and residue. 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 externally 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!
