Nice, early white-key Skyriter in brown leatherette zipper case. For some reason, even when supplied in a zipper case, many of these still have the vestigal return arm meant for Skyriters with the metal clamshell case. This problem is easily remidied by stealing the long return arm off a junker Corsair.
- Whatâ€™s all this hoopla about staplers?
- Yes you can swap the long return lever from a Corsair for the vestigal return arm of your early Skyriter!

Hunter: Ted Munk (munk)
I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.
I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Skyriter on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Skyriter By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
