The Typewriter Database 1960 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # 5TE204595 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1960 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # 5TE204595 The electric version of the Super-5 . The impact this machine must have had on those who were used to its mechanical counterparts was likely dramatic.

It's a splendid typewriter to use, and surprisingly far more quiet than the mechanical Super-5 models. And its type action? "Like frogs in a dynamite pond."
