SOLD 1950's Smith-Corona Silent-Super typewriter- $80

In 1950, Smith-Corona unleashed the Silent-Super portable typewriter on the American public, and it rapidly became one of the most popular typing machines of the era. And, quite frankly, things haven't been the same since. i know, i know, you're thinking today's technology buries relics such as the Silent-Super, and i hear you. but, i'm so tired of hearing "apple does this, microsoft doesn't do that, wireless is neat, the internets is awesome, droid rules" etc that i ask you this: does your i-Whatever have lovely, sleek hard resin keys? a gorgeous blue-green metal case WITH racing stripes? or, a set of famously patented "rabbit ear" paper supports? do you even know what paper is anymore??? for gosh sakes, get back to the basics and type your way to vintage happiness. the click-click-clack sound of the Silent-Super makes just enough noise not to be truly silent, yet isn't so noisy that it drives you to drink. however, you just might want to sip a classic 1950's manhattan while typing your sure-to-be-best-selling novel. (gorgeous tan colored, hard-sided typewriter case included. ribbon and all keys are in good working order. this is a keeper. a real beaut.)
