  1. I’ll guess Smith-Corona Super 5 series in Pink or Coral, with a secondary guess of 5TE Electric Portable, same colors. Believe it or not, the only 5TE I have is pink! And it WORKS!

    1. well, of course it works. the 5TE’s are built like tanks! Only God help us if the belts ever break, I sure wish I knew someone who made suitable replacements.

      1. Your Typewriter & Computer in North Olmsted Ohio has a case of replacement belts NOS from the manufacturer. Or, they did the last I knew.

  2. I’d say Smith-Corona too, but in pearl color. Those S-C cases are unmistakable!

  3. Same here, but i’ll go on a tangent and say pink/coral Sterling.

  4. A 1956 pink Smith-Corona Silent-Super.

    My Grandma used to belong to Eastern Star. A mysterious organization — what could “Grand Representative of Wyoming in Arizona” mean?

  5. Smith-Corona, although I am going to say a 5T-E. I was using mine 5T-E just a few minutes ago. They are sweet electrics.
