Antique 1938 Series 2A Smith Corona Sterling Typewriter Floating Shift WORKS Vtg: $140
Selling an old school vintage Smith Corona Sterling Typewriter in Case with what is called a floating shift. It does work normally - types smoothly. All keys were pushed and tested and all of them typed on a piece of paper and all of them returned back to their resting spot after they were pushed. So, all keys working. Shows little evidence of wear except on the outside of the hardcase. The serial number on inside right side says "2A 56257". On the back edge it says "L.C. Smith & Corona Typewriters Inc." So, it is a 2A series Sterling model made by Smith Corona. The serial number "2A 56257" makes it a 1938 model (I believe) because the serial numbers for 1938 started with 2A 50694 and for 1939 their serial numbers started with 2A 62335, so based on that information (from typewriterdatabase website) this would be a 1938 model. It types normally and types all the way across the paper - I just made a little note on the right side of the paper so you can see it works. It weighs a little over 17 pounds, so will be expensive to ship but the purchase price includes the shipping. So, free standard shipping in the USA (lower 48 states). If you are buying from Hawaii or Alaska, contact me first as shipping will be a bit more.
