1963 Smith Corona Classic 12 Serial # 6LTV-125666 1963 Smith Corona Classic 12 typewriter, Serial # 6LTV-125666 Steven Blake's 1963 Smith Corona Classic 12 typewriter. 2022-01-03 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Blake: 1963 Smith Corona Classic 12 Serial # 6LTV-125666 There were a lot of Classic 12s produced by Smith-Corona, and many that have survived the decades since, so they're not rare by any means. And typing on a Smith-Corona is a lot like eating at McDonald's: it's familiar, consistent, and generally satisfying. But when you find one with a unique typeface, well, that typewriter is worth a second look in my book. This machine came with SCM's Basic Writing No. 67 typeface. At 6 CPI, it's perfect for typing on the the old style 8 1/2 x 14 legal paper.
