About this item

Vintage 1930s Black Smith Corona Silent 1S Portable Typewriter
with Original Carry Case
Fully Working, New Ribbon Fitted

This typewriter is an early Smith Corona Silent Portable finished in high gloss black paint. Made by Corona in the US but sold in the UK. This rare model was only made for 4 years and its serial number (1S24216) dates it to late 1934 or early 1935, pre second world war. It is in full working order and it comes with its own black hard protective carry case. Both typewriter & case are in great vintage condition.

The typewriter has been cleaned and is in full working condition & all keys move easily and all selections are fully functional. No damage to the paintwork. A new two tone ribbon has been fitted; replacement ribbons are readily available for sale on the internet to allow continued use. The only issue is the hinge for the top cover has become detached on the left-hand side, however when closed this is not noticeable. Please check all photos as they form part of the description.

The case has been cleaned and it is in great condition. Both clasps close well.

It would appear to have had very little use, and is therefore in great vintage condition. Fab for a typewriter collector or a display item for your vintage home or to write your first novel.
