I think Smith-Corona office typewriters are pretty good but this one is sluggish. It'll be interesting to see how it responds to cleaning. The Model 88 designation refers to its 88 characters, although it was also available with 96 characters. Ah, the complications of âdevelopmentâ! Does anyone know where they crammed the extra four keys?

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona 88 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona 88 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
