1950 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 21486 1950 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 2Y 21486 Michael Bartelt's 1950 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2020-11-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Bartelt: 1950 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 21486 Coincidentally enough, I picked this machine up in my hometown after purchasing her on eBay. She is the OG compact portable typewriter, branded for mid-century writers taking to the skies. Meant to fit squarely on your seat-back tray table, this beauty is lightweight, but uncompromising in her performance and style. She features the same keyboard and accents as the Silents and Sterlings of the era. On top on that, she smells like Hershey's kisses and looks just as sweet.
