1955 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial Serial # 88E4127090C15 1955 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial typewriter, Serial # 88E4127090C15 David Vandergucht's 1955 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial typewriter. 2023-01-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of David Vandergucht: 1955 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial Serial # 88E4127090C15 Bought this one from someone locally. It needed thorough cleaning, reattachment of some springs, reattaching a link, rewinding the margin spring. The typewriter has some fun features. I enjoy the wide 14" carriage. The margins, while not officially "Magic Margins" (tm), sure seem magical. Then there's the fun end of page indicator. And, in the unlikely case that I need to type something using both dollars and pounds sterling, I'll have the symbols I need. I would prefer an exclamation mark instead of the pound symbol.
