1965 Sears Citation Serial # S6A 107906 1965 Sears Citation typewriter, Serial # S6A 107906 Sid and Roxy's 1965 Sears Citation typewriter. 2020-03-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sid and Roxy: 1965 Sears Citation Serial # S6A 107906 I'm going with this as a 1965 Sears Citation as it looks like the 1964 had Citation in cursive where in 1965 it looks like they switched to a Helvetica like font in all caps. We found this at an estate shop up in Minneapolis, MN. At that point we didn't have a cursive typewriter so I was pretty excited when I started typing on it. If I remember correctly we paid $60 but it was in good shape except for the ribbon. It's a good typer, but it like other typewriters that type in cursive can only do a solid color ribbon as the typeface is too big for a bicolor ribbon.
