There is a warranty card with this, matching serial number, punched for a purchase date of October, 1970. This really helps with the very incomplete Smith Corona records. The serial number really does include the dash and the space. Be careful where you place that vase!

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.
