1951 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 53842 1951 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 2Y 53842 Paul Moore's 1951 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2020-03-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Moore: 1951 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 2Y 53842 Found this one at a thrift store up in the twin cities for $10, unfortunately it didn't have the matching hard case top with it. It was in pretty rough shape coated with WD-40 and several typebars that were bent. After working on it for several hours it can now type again and now I'm on the lookout for a matching cover (anyone have one they can part with?).
