Purchased at Antiques on Brady in Davenport, IA on 4/14/2016 for $15.00

This machine is a re-branded Smith-Corona Skyriter.

The case stinks to high heaven. It's seen better days and is going to need a good cleaning.

I've been collecting typewriters since 2010 and currently have about 70 machines in my possession. While I have my personal collection, I also clean up typewriters for sale and would like to learn to repair and restore them, too.
