The Typewriter Database 1950 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 49871 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Erik Jaros: 1950 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 49871 Craigslist purchase. Needs a drawstring and a serious cleaning.

UPDATE: I really wanted to take this on an upcoming trip, but time was slipping away. So I gave in and took it to MTE for repair. Bill had it done in a day and it's a great little machine.

Please excuse the horrible phone pics. I am without a digital rig at the moment.

Just a guy with a love for writing and vintage machinery. Naturally I ended up here.
