The Typewriter Database 197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe Serial # 6MSH 102247 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe Serial # 6MSH 102247 This is a curious SCM that I was handed by someone who didn't want it anymore. I see that Richard Polt has one in his collection as well. It's a lovely blue colour (I apologize in advance for the poor lighting; I don't think the photos do the typewriter justice) with the sliding ribbon cover feature. It took me a while to find the serial number, which is on the bottom on a plate visible through one of the holes in the bottom of the machine. This machine needs work. Sometimes the carriage advances, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes pressing the shift lock sends the carriage flying all the way to the left. I can and will make it work. This is the only Made in Canada SCM Clipper Seventy Deluxe I've seen anywhere other than Richard's gallery. Note the European keyset--perhaps it was intended for export?

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
