1964 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 409232 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 409232 Mary Echevarria's 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2016-02-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mary Echevarria: 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 409232 I cleaned this typewriter for a local community arts space.

I repaired a broken clevis linkage with a thin piece of metal and duct tape and re-attached it to the typebar. The typewriter gets a lot of use in classes, camps and events, so we'll see how the repair holds.

Serial number is stamped next to ribbon spool on right side of the typewriter.

I'm a novice collector with a very small collection of mostly nonfunctional typewriters. I enjoy tinkering and repairs, so I am slowly but surely putting these typewriters back into service.
