The Typewriter Database 196x Smith Corona Corsair 700 Serial # 6YP17273 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 196x Smith Corona Corsair 700 Serial # 6YP17273 Well, this is a surprise! A DeLuxe Corsair! The special details: Power Space; padded CR/LF lever; padded vinyl fascia glued on over the keyboard; unjammer key (A light touch on the backspace key unjams and a heavier push back spaces.); larger Tab key; and best of all, a really nice case built like the standard S-C formed aluminum cases; its dainty size is impressive when you first see it.

Standard details: five factory-set tabs, at 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 spaces and marked with red ticks on the paper bail; paper supports; single carriage release on the right, 1-5/8” spools; three-position ribbon setting; L M H touch-control; fully-enclosed bottom---all in all, the best Corsair I have seen.

What’s the difference between this and Ted’s Corsair 710?

Added some comparison pics of the sweet case for this Corsair.

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.
