1959 Smith Corona Skyriter

Got this lovely baby at an online auction when a lovely older lady in my church downsized to move into a nursing home. Bought it sight unseen (the online photo just showed the tan leather case zipped up), for under $20. Was tickled to see the lovely Skyriter inside.

Writer. Proofreader. Scapegoat.

I'm happy to own 11 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).

I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. The older models (including a 1954 Skyriter, a 1920s Underwood, and a Royal KMM) are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
