1965 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 540518 1965 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter, Serial # 6T 540518 Mary Echevarria's 1965 Smith Corona Galaxie typewriter. 2016-11-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mary Echevarria: 1965 Smith Corona Galaxie Serial # 6T 540518 I cleaned up this Galaxie for a neighborhood shop. The typebars were frozen in the segment as if set in concrete. Scrubbed the segment with denatured alcohol and now the typewriter is happily typing. A very solid, pleasant typewriter.

Beautiful robin's egg blue color.

Serial number located by 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.
