moreThe seller says: Smith-Corona introduced the new "flattop" design in November, 1931 with an unprecedented promotional campaign. More about that in a bit. These very early versions have a medallion of the Smith-Corona logo embedded in the ribbon cover, and the ribbon cover itself is completely removable. By 1933, the medallion had been omitted and the ribbon cover hinged in back, although the name remained generic for a short while.
For the first few years, there were two versions, both called simply Smith-Corona, the only significant difference being that one had a tab feature and the other did not. They came in black, red, green, and, in a few special cases, silver. The name honored the first new portable produced after the 1926 merger of L.C. Smith and Corona and was designed to look like a combination of Corona's portables and L.C. Smith's standards. Though both versions of the model were officially known as the Sterling, in 1934 the tabbed and non-tabbed versions were split into their own models, the Sterling and the Standard. less
