1959 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6 T 245969 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6 T 245969 Geoff Flash's 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2020-09-10 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6 T 245969 #412

Thrown in with the sale of two other machines... the carriage is frozen in place.
Update... Started taking this apart to treat it as a learning opportunity... carriage frozen, half the keys were disconnected from the type bars, and it was filthy. After spending the day with it, I'll be able to supply a type sample soon.

"I was born in a crossfire hurricane�...
A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
