The Typewriter Database 1959 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y-53813 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Wing: 1959 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y-53813 The worst of the three I have purchased. The wonderful long-arm version went to my daughter for her café work, and the cleaner body went to my brother-in-law Mike T. (see his posts on this site), and this is sitting in the garage in the deeper part of my archive. The plastic logo which niftily shows through the cutout in the ribbon cover is mashed down and someday a project to restore.

Living in So. Calif. USA. Bought a mint SC flattop at an estate sale for $5 some years ago, and enjoyed the tactility of typing after using computers since 1968, the punch-card era. I gave it to my mother-in-law to exercise her arthritic fingers. After she passed away last year I found it among her things. I wanted something newer, so bought an Olympia SM3. I am not a collector, but seem to have acquired more than 30 machines since March 2016, and have passed several on to family and friends, and bartered with others.
