1954 Smith Corona Skyriter

Serial #2Y 191946

Nice little typeface. I've been looking for a 12 cpi
machine for a while. The platen isn't too hard, though very very narrow, and the platen knobs are smaller in diameter than a milk-bottle top! I love the way this thing comes out of its shell so easily.
It still has the ribbon it came with, which is misleading, as this is a one colour typer. The 'selector' switch on the right of the keys is the ribbon reverse.
Metal lid, sounds like an old roasting pan when you take it off and put it down, but what the heck!
