1939 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1495537-11 1939 L.C. Smith Super Speed typewriter, Serial # 1495537-11 Mark Petersen's 1939 L.C. Smith Super Speed typewriter. 2015-07-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 1939 L.C. Smith Super Speed Serial # 1495537-11 Purchased for $25 via craigslist in the New River Valley, Virginia. When I bought it I was disappointed that everything was rusted stiff. I attacked it with a lot of Liquid Wrench penetrating oil and patience and now it works great! I have kept it in barn-find condition externally for fun. I love the independent bearing action, very snappy machine.
