1960 Smith Corona Skyriter

Serial #3Y 267775

Here is another eBay score and this one turned out to be a disappointment. It's in great shape but it's just not fun to type on. Leaves me cold, though others seem to like it. Perhaps all portables are like this? In doing research on this model I've never been able to find another Skyriter with this style of badge on the front.

I'm a registered nurse working with the elderly in a long-term care facility, and am of course working on the Great American Novel in the off hours. I recently rediscovered the typewriter after a 20+ year hiatus, and in this world of smartphones and laptops it feels good to be back home again. I write differently on the typewriter than I do on a computer, which is a good thing. I've only acquired 5 so far and am actively fighting the urge to buy "just one more." I live in the beautiful Central / Leatherstocking region of New York State with my wife and our 5 cats.
