The SCM marketing people called this feature comfort touch. The Super (prefix 5T) was the premium model and included a system for setting and clearing tab stops from the keyboard. The type size here is pica, 10 characters to the inch -- the larger of the two most common typewriter print sizes. For a sense of the cosmetic condition, I encourage you to enlarge the photos.
The green keys and carriage knobs play nicely against the slate-blue paint. Please note: It was only after finishing my photo and video sessions with this typewriter that I noticed it had come to me with one green carriage knob and one replacement gray knob. I've reached into my stock of parts and placed a correct green knob on the right end of the carriage, and I hope it's okay that I didn't go back and repeat the photo and video sessions! While all the bodywork was removed for painting (see photo above), I had access to the mechanical innards and gave them a thorough cleaning.This machine came to me without a carrying case; I salvaged a newer Smith-Corona case with a broken latch, securing it with industrial-strength hook and loop fabric, and it now protects the typewriter well. Most important here, in my view, are the images depicting the impression this typewriter places on the page. If you seek a typewriter for use as well as for display, the quality of the specimen page should guide your shopping decision. I should note that the new ribbon in this machine is on the "wet" or heavily inked side. The impression will become a bit more crisp as this ribbon is used. In both the specimen sample and the video clip, I'm typing with a "second sheet, " a backing sheet of paper which cushions the impact of the keys. This is best practice when you're using a machine of this vintage that has its original platen. Please do be in touch if you have any questions about the condition, use or care of this machine.
