The Typewriter Database 196X Smith Corona Electra 120 Serial # 6L E130760 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Small: 196X Smith Corona Electra 120 Serial # 6L E130760 This machine was my grandmother's and then my mother's. I don't exactly know when it was manufactured, but my mom said she used it in high school, which would have been 1970 or 1971 at the very least. I think she might have said her older brother used it in high school too, which would have been the '60s.
The machine works well; it has been well preserved.
One thing that interests is the keyboard layout. It is nearly exactly the same as the layout on modern computer keyboards.
Also, what is "Copy Set?"

I've been interested in typewriters for some time, but I only recently obtained my first one, an electric, and in short order obtained several more manuals, and only one of the manuals worked when I obtained it.
I travel and am kind of a nomad so I like looking for typewriters, and would like to learn more about fixing and maintaining them.
