1956 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 14077 1956 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 3Y 14077 Uwe Wachtendorf's 1956 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2018-07-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1956 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 14077 A battered beauty, this Skyriter still soldiers on, and despite its woes (missing and broken parts) I wouldn't hesitate to take it along as a travel partner on a work assignment.

A superb example of an ultra-portable, the Skyriter is a wonderful mix of Lilliputian controls, generously-sized keys, and surprising performance. Shaped like a brick, my only small complaint with the machine centers around its somewhat vague feel.
