The Typewriter Database 1973 Smith Corona Pride Line Electric Portable Serial # 6ELP-101139 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1973 Smith Corona Pride Line Electric Portable Serial # 6ELP-101139 No matter how much I try, a few electric models always seem to creep into the collection. Fair enough, they are decent typewriters after all and are a novelty to use after weeks of pounding away on mechanical models.

This Pride Line has the Changeable Type feature, albeit for only one key (I'm used to seeing two on the mechanical models of the era).

An October 1973 purchase date was punched out on the warranty card, which seems right for this model to use as a manufacturer year.
