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!
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona "Eighty-Eight" Secretarial By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
