Smith-Corona Silent-Super

This is my third machine I received a couple years ago. It is one of my favorites.


This coffee colored contraption was manufactured around the mid-1950s. It is also one of the stars of this vintage 1956 christmas ad:

(You can especially tell how old this ad is by inspecting the boy’s clothing). I luckily got ahold of the tan typewriter, because if you ask me, the other colors look plain tacky. Any ways, this particular model is named the “Silent-Super”, though it is anything but.


Of course for the time it must have been revolutionary.
