1959 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 240011X 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 240011X Jana LaRue's 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2023-08-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jana LaRue: 1959 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 240011X Very lovable machine. I especially love this typeface as it is slightly smaller than that of my other typewriters.
The enclosed body makes it a little more annoying to repair and access all its inner parts and the bell is not particularly nice to hear, but nonetheless I love this little machine.
