1953 Sterling by Smith-Corona, repainted

5.00 out of 5




1953 Sterling vintage typewriter by Smith-Corona. 5A Series.

Normally we don’t paint such a classy typewriter but this one had some rough years and needed a little facelift! (We all need a little help sometimes). The top cover has a small dent in it.

Suitable for authors and those with longer writing projects. A great working vintage typewriter! You will love how it types. A solid, trustworthy typewriter. You can’t go wrong. It’s smooth and easy (like a Sunday morning).

This 1953 Sterling typewriter does NOT have a case to go with it. Also, the shift lock releases after a few characters.

Check out the typing demo video I created so you can see for yourself how well it works. Also, it helps you know how to use the typewriter (and where to find the tab stops!) https://youtu.be/hq1pzSCHfjI

The typewriter is repaired, cleaned, and a fresh ribbon is installed. It’s ready to go! Reminder, this portable typewriter does NOT have a case.

Remember…we CLEAN, SERVICE, REPAIR, & TEST all our typewriters. Also, we give you 3-days to make sure it is working as we say.

Base price is $225 and includes shipping.
