The Typewriter Database 1966 Smith Corona Corsair Serial # 6Y587395 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1966 Smith Corona Corsair Serial # 6Y587395 Michigan antique mall purchase. 1966 is a guess since there is a 6Y machine as 1967 starting with 695 and mine starts with 587. An attractive machine but the plastic feels cheap--not like the Classic 12 or Galaxy. Backside says made in England. Ribbon no good so had to use carbon paper for the typeface which looks like elite. I no longer own this machine.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
