1957 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # UNKN 1957 Smith Corona Electric Portable typewriter, Serial # UNKN Gerald Ambrose's 1957 Smith Corona Electric Portable typewriter. 2021-12-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1957 Smith Corona Electric Portable Serial # UNKN Spotted at an antique store. I wanted to buy this thing more than I have every wanted to buy anything else before, but the price at $125 was just not right.
It worked, but needed some deep cleanings as the keys were sticky and the '2' did not even move.

Cool piece though; unfortunately, I could not locate the serial number at the time.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
