Typewriter TECHS WHERE QUALITY RESTORATION IS OUR STANDARD

The Smith Corona company had a long and varied history originating from gun manufacturing and ending as a conglomeration of several companies. The 1930's saw a lot of changes for the L.C. Smith & Corona Company. They came out of the Depression launching a line of new portables: Standard, Sterling and Silent all with a flat top style.  All the models came with many features such as touch selector, a piano key action and a complete frame to surround the mechanism, which were available only to standard office machines. However, Corona became best known for its introduction of the Floating Shift mechanism. This design dropped the type bar basket instead of the carriage when typing capitals. Even though the Standard model lacked some of the bells and whistles of its siblings Sterling and Silent, this machine outsold other more expensive models and offered the best value for the money. The Standard model eventually becoming the Clipper, remained tremendously popular. In the 1950's under the company's new name, Smith-Corona, came a re-design of the 1930's flat top line portables, capitalizing on the style of the day with a streamlined look billed as Speedline. This look gave the machines rounded features with a matte finish. The Speedline versions were noted to be very well built and were the choice of many writers and typists for decades.
The Smith Corona Super Silent series typewriter was a union of the Sterling and Silent models. These were both efficient workhorses and best sellers for Corona.  Later in the 1950's the Super Silent was updated with a crinkle finish, which came in colors and phenolic keys.

The Corona folding series was a marvel of design for its time. It was one of the first typewriters to feature aluminum construction, and a small compact keyboard. The Corona 3 was the replacement to the Standard Corona Folding Typewriter. It turned out to be the most successful typewriter Corona ever produced. Its production spanned almost 30 years. It was exported to most counties around the globe. As time past small changes were incorporated into the No3 design, but it remained virtually unchanged thru is production period. Several accessories, such as stands and a variety of cases where produced over the production run. Later in the 1920's they were produced in colors to competes with other manufacturers doing the same

The Royal Quiet DeLuxe puts you right in touch with literary history -- it was one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite machines. This was the first model in a series of the Royal Quiet DeLuxe line that outsold any other portables of the time. It was introduced just before World War II, but its production was suspended when Royal Typewriter Company, like other typewriter manufacturers in the United States at the time, was converted to an ordnance factory to produce weapons. When production resumed in 1946, the Royal Quiet DeLuxe continued to gain a following among on-the-go writers and journalists. Compact, snazzy and a pleasure to write with, it is a real workhorse.

There were two types of the same typewriter, what is refered to as the flat top and the speedline. The speedline fetured a very spreedlined appearance as a marketing ploy. This is in the rare burgundy speedline...two expensive options for the 1930's ...
