1956 Smith Corona Skyriter #3Y 38544


Nice, early white-key Skyriter in brown leatherette zipper case. For some reason, even when supplied in a zipper case, many of these still have the vestigal return arm meant for Skyriters with the metal clamshell case. This problem is easily remidied by stealing the long return arm off a junker Corsair.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 40 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine.
