Just another variant on the basic, reliable Smith-Corona portable electric design. I decided to add it when I saw that there was no Electra 210 on the database. I like the light that comes on to tell you the power is on (as if you couldn't tell from the hum!). The platen is blue. The faux-wood panel makes me suspect the 1970s.
