The Typewriter Database 197X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2200 Serial # 8E A32209 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Linda Au: 197X Smith Corona Coronamatic 2200 Serial # 8E A32209 Bought from a man via Craigslist for $20 on 9/21/16. Was looking for a smallish electric for those times when I want the ease of an electric but didn't want to haul around the monster Selectric.

Uses proprietary ribbon cartridges instead of regular spools, but they seem to be easily found online for about ten bucks, so I'm counting this a win. Needs a little TLC for cleaning but everything seems to be working properly.

Humorist. Novelist. Scapegoat.

I'm happy to own 13 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).

I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. I also use my Selectric I a lot since it fits perfectly on my antique typewriter desk. Some of the manuals are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
