The Smith-Corona Sterling is an excellent American designed typewriter with a pleasant (and adjustable) keyboard touch.  The design heritage of these machines dates back to the mid-1930's. This particular machine was made in Smith-Corona's Belgian factory in 1955 to full USA specification.  It was, however, intended for the British market from new and features a full English keyboard.

In superb original condition, and showing little sign of wear, this machine has many years of serious use ahead of it.  The platen is supple and grips the paper well; internal rubber stops have been replaced with new.   The machine boasts a 44-character keyboard, a freehead (useful for lining up pre-printed forms) and a tabulator which operates with six adjustable stops at the rear of the carriage.   A feature of these machines is the distinctive folding 'rabbit ears' paper support at the back of the carriage to hold the page away from the back of the machine as you type.  This machine is a real 'keeper'!
