The Typewriter Database 19XX Smith Corona Coronet Electric 12 Serial # 6ELJ 225852 W From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 19XX Smith Corona Coronet Electric 12 Serial # 6ELJ 225852 W My first electric typewriter, found on craigslist and purchased for $10. I am the second owner. It's an all right machine, sometimes it will crimp the paper which probably means a bad roller but I rarely use this one. It has a normal ribbon not the Coronamatic cartridge, and it also has a manual carriage return.

I also just foolishly realized I do not actually have changeable type on the first typebar. And if you ever wondered what typing without the type would look like look at where 1 and ! are supposed to be on my type sample...

Sold to someone needing a machine to address envelopes. It sure is a beaut but I don't use it much so hopefully it will be happier in its new home.
