1960 Smith Corona Skyriter

Serial #3Y 276109

Fly the friendly skies.

"Pan Am"

My first Skyriter that's younger than I am! (Tempted to call it "Junior.")

Pleather case and typewriter in near mint condition, other than a bit of scoring on the ribbon cover from the long line space lever (in-case damage?) 11 cpi pica? and nice action now it's been cleaned up a bit. Love this typer!

Traded to Eric Han.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.

Never seen a pleather case in such good condition!

As above, so below.

Handiest travel ax yet!

Well it did require some airbrushing.
