1963 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 362173 1963 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 362173 Richard Polt's 1963 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2015-07-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1963 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 362173 The serial number records here peter out at 1962, but it looks like that would be the correct year.

This is a good example of an early Galaxie. The opening in the ribbon cover is smaller than on later versions (so the clearance is very tight for the typebars on either end; if they are hitting the ribbon cover, you can bend the cover up a bit).

The SCM logo consists of three separate plastic parallelograms.

Fancy paper bail with scale and tiny rollers.

44 keys.
