Lucky you! That's a really beautiful typewriter. I was fortunate enough to try the action on one of these '30s-40s Smith Coronas (I purchased a Clipper) and I found it absolutely lovely to use. They are quite special.
Very lucky! You know, that's the model favored by the Unibomber (his sold for something around $22k)
Hey, welcome to flat top heaven and the Harley of typewriters (if I may make such a comparison). Nothing too fancy, but they work well and just keep on going. Your feed rollers might have flat spots?
Wow that's a great find! Love those and have not had a crack at one.
They are a great machine. I feel like some 1930s Insurance Investigator whenever I use mine. Congrats!
