The Typewriter Database 197X Smith Corona Courier Serial # 8YA315714 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 197X Smith Corona Courier Serial # 8YA315714 A late English-made Courier with a big plastic body and form-fitting case. Also seen in the C/T (correcting typewriter) version. Essentially this is the same old cheap, rickety little machine, but it has a very smooth carriage, and a new ribbon advance system. Both spools are turned notch by notch, and both reverse their directions when the end of the ribbon is reversed (in contrast to the usual system, where one spool simply spins freely).
