1959 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 200358 1959 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 3Y 200358 Geir Kihle Hanssen's 1959 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2023-05-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geir Kihle Hanssen: 1959 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 3Y 200358 Machine bought and used by a man when he was a student and kept it for all this time after. It hasn't seen much use beyond his years as a student, and it shows. Very nicely preserved. The bag is a nice faux leather bag, and the pamphlets that came with it when new are still in it. It having a 12 cpi elite typeface is a nice bonus too. Don't see it too often here in Norway!

I am a Norwegian fellow who enjoys tinkering and fixing up typewriters. One day I decided I wanted a typewriter to write letters on. I bought one that turned out not to work. I got annoyed and decided I should be able to figure out what was wrong and fix it. I did it, but the rush of successfully mending such an intricate machine was like a drug. I wanted more. I decided I would try to buy non-functioning, but pretty machines, fix them and sell them before repeating the process. What I didn't expect was that I would fall in love with the machines I fix so now I suddenly find myself a bit of a collector.
