Thanks for all the work you have been doing and for supplying all the wonderful information.
Can you advise how to find the serial number on possible 1930’s area portable Smith-Corona typewriter. I don’t seem to be able to find one. Thanks
I haven’t got one to refer to, but if it has a lift-up ribbon cover, try looking around on the frame struts just underneath there. Smith-Corona generally engraved the serial number on the outside of the right-hand strut.
