1956 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial Serial # 88E 4297447-11 1956 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial typewriter, Serial # 88E 4297447-11 John Cooper's 1956 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial typewriter. 2018-09-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Cooper: 1956 Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial Serial # 88E 4297447-11 This is the one that started my obsession when I saw it at Blue Moon Camera and Machine (Portland, Oregon) in April 2018. Sturdy as a tank, loaded with features, but with a surprisingly light touch, it produces a very pleasing, professional-looking output in an even elite face. Expertly restored by Matt McCormack at Ace Typewriter Co., it will definitely last for decades more.

Resident of Portland, Oregon since 2015. Mostly interested in semi-portables of the '30s, '40s, and '50s (the late glass key top through late pre-electric eras), with a special interest in unusual or distinctive typefaces other than techno and script. Still new and always learning!
