1956 Smith Corona Super Serial # 5T405439 1956 Smith Corona Super typewriter, Serial # 5T405439 Jonathan Crowe's 1956 Smith Corona Super typewriter. 2022-11-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jonathan Crowe: 1956 Smith Corona Super Serial # 5T405439 Made in Canada, which apparently maintained the "Super" name after U.S. 5T models became Silent-Supers. Elite typeface.

Bought from a fellow hobbyist in November 2020 in Ottawa, this represents my first foray into typewriter collecting. As of this writing (March 2021) it needs some work, particularly on the type basket, which seems a bit loose; the platen is a stone and should be recovered at some point.
