1938 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1441284B 11 1938 L.C. Smith Super Speed typewriter, Serial # 1441284B 11 Edgar Zapata's 1938 L.C. Smith Super Speed typewriter. 2022-01-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Edgar Zapata: 1938 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1441284B 11 This is another typewriter we picked up in NYC in the 1970s. It has never been used and as you can see it's in pretty bad shape. Multiple keys on the left side appear to have issues. I am looking forward to cleaning it up more and restoring it to full operating condition.
