The Typewriter Database 1961 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # 5TE237598 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1961 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # 5TE237598 From an antique store, in decent condition. This one has an odd label on the paper table---”Electric V”. Yes, it’s rather a high serial number among the ones in this database, but the fifth version?

This is my first one of these “first portable electrics” and I must say, it lives up to all the praise you guys have given it---smooth, strong, accurate, quiet, ....

Thanks. You made me not hesitate to pick it up.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
