1964 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 463448 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 463448 Mary Echevarria's 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2016-03-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mary Echevarria: 1964 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 463448 I cleaned up this typewriter for a local community arts space.

The machine has a large dent in back and both carriage release levers were broken off suggesting damage in a fall. I used duct tape to secure the one remaining lever to the machine.

The vertical alignment was off and required adjustment. I got it "close enough".

Segment shift.

The serial number is located next to the right ribbon spool.

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.
