1962 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 525371 1962 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 525371 Jon Olivarez's 1962 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2020-08-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jon Olivarez: 1962 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 525371 As a general rule, I often avoid any machine made after 1960. Though they may be excellent typers, their design (IMO) is often bland and uninspiring. Case in point: this sterile-looking Galaxie. She typed like a dream but looking at her didn't make me want to create--it made me want to pay my insurance premium.

Sold to a very nice tattoo artist/writer.
