1964 Smith Corona Classic Serial # 5X 114222 1964 Smith Corona Classic typewriter, Serial # 5X 114222 Daniel Deary's 1964 Smith Corona Classic typewriter. 2022-05-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Daniel Deary: 1964 Smith Corona Classic Serial # 5X 114222 Purchased this from GW auction. This my 2nd Classic but this has a pica typeface. Cosmetically has issues...someone placed this unit upside down in the case and marred the scale. Has a few blemishes... SCM label smeared in the back. After cleaning though it is a wonderful typewriter. This classic has a centering lever...my other one does not. The basket/vibrator combination with 2 screws is very much like a Silent Super. The bell is diminutive and is not very loud. This differs from the 5AX Sterling which has a loud and bigger bell.

Points: 325

Retired. Have been a Photography geek for many years...old school film. Also have been an audiophile and have been collecting vinyl before it became fashionable. Accidently(?) began collecting typewriters in the early1980's...I had four by 2006. After I inherited my mothers Hermes 3000 in 2017 my interest really took off and now I have 17 typewriters in total. The majority of my collection are Smith Corona's largely because they are plentiful, easy to work on and are very good typers.
