1961 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 4Y 596225 1961 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # 4Y 596225 Paul Nixon's 1961 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2022-05-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Paul Nixon: 1961 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # 4Y 596225 When I got this machine, it had been sitting out outside on the owner's porch and used as a decoration. After installing a new blue ribbon, cleaning out the dirt and cobwebs, giving it a lubrication, and getting a small part from a fellow typospherian (Thanks, Sarah @ Just.My.Typewriter!) this little treasure works like a charm and comes with me on road trips.

My interest in typewriters began (in earnest) at the beginning of 2020, when my sister gave me for my birthday a Smith Corona Riviera like she used to have in college. I used to play around on it when I was a kid. Now I have five typewriters, including a Hermes Rocket, a Royal Safari, a 1949 Smith-Corona Skyriter, and a Smith-Corona Silent. My most prized one, however, is my dad's 1964 Underwood Touch Master Five that I was able clean and resurrect.
