Default Check out this Smith Corona

Was at local Amish lumber yard the other day and noticed this. I thought it was cool and wanted to share with yins.

I've actually seen more S-C 1903a3s than S-C business machines. This particular one is an adding machine.

So then the question becomes is it a 2,4, or 6 groove? Is it the original finish? Any rebuild cartouches?

Thanks for sharing.

I wonder if it was used in combat or just ceremonial?

It’s awesome that a company that was making typewriters and business equipment could switch over to firearms production in such a short time!!

Were SC typewriters of the Elite type or Pica type or did SC make both kinds of type?

You younger folks probably don't know what I am talking about.

You should see that Dutchman running the bolt on that thing when he's adding up my Bill at the end of the month.

Would Eddystone(Baldwin locomotive works) be the first private non firearm manufacturer to make firearms for the U.S. Government

No, I don’t think so . . . .

It seems to me that some of the firms that had contracts for the M1861 Springfield musket during the civil war, were into products other than firearms.
