    The Smith Premier was the most advertised and successful double keyboard typewriter of its time. Model 1 is distinguished from later models by its exquisite nickel-plated embossed pattern on the frame.

    It sold for $100 in line with many keyboard typewriters of the day. In comparison, a horse-drawn carriage cost around $60 and a finely engraved rifle was $35.
