    I have a Smith Corona Serial #SC177084 and it looks exactly like the portable Sterling model. It has chrome logo and Floating Shift emblem in the middle. The case is a light beige. But what is odd is that the word Clipper appears on the back of the typewriter instead of Sterling.

    Any information about this (is it odd or have I just not run across this yet online) would be helpful!

    Thank you.

      I also have a typewriter just like this one. Identicle! However it does not say clipper on it. Same beige case, same floating shift chrome emblem in center. I'm trying to find out how old it is.

      I have the same thing, almost. It's in the same case but my keys are all the dark green. It doesn't advance when you type and I'm trying to fix it. My serial number is 5c240021. My email is eklueck at

      There are some things different like the leaver. If you'll look closely you'll see. That's also with the royals
