I bought it for $39, it works beautifully. The only problem is the += key arm is detached, but I'll get that fixed. I've found out with what I believe to be accurate information, that this is in fact a 1963 model SCM Coronet.
The platen itself is 9.5", and the position of the "Coronet" model name, being positioned alone and at the top back of the machine is an indication, combined with the serial number and SCM Smith-Corona logo on the front. Later models would have "Coronet Electric" on the front right, with the SCM (etc) on the front left.
Interestingly, though it is an electric, it has the manual style return lever, instead of the power return button, which is pretty cool, because those power return buttons are rather aggressive in nature anyway. My aunt had one that shook the whole table, spilling coffee everywhere whenever the carriage was returned. That was a loooong time ago!
This style from Smith Corona is one of the best, and highest rated machines you can find, and are darn-near indestructible.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Coronet on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Coronet By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
