Rusty is a 1949 Smith-Corona Sterling; corroded, marginal margin settings, wonky line advance, White-Out be-spattered, hesitant keys, and a bit musty smelling. I nearly passed on it yesterday until noticing its wonderful font. While in the midst of typecasting with it today a Fed-X truck arrived with Ollie, a mighty fine looking Oliver No. 9. But here, let's have Rusty tell the tale:
Rusty ... he just makes me happy. Grimy, corroded, but with real soul.
Meet Ollie. His pencil holder swung the deal. Stay tuned.
