196X Smith Corona Classic 10 Serial # 6T2V 900347 196X Smith Corona Classic 10 typewriter, Serial # 6T2V 900347 Mark Petersen's 196X Smith Corona Classic 10 typewriter. 2013-12-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 196X Smith Corona Classic 10 Serial # 6T2V 900347 This was my first "real" typewriter which I bought for myself for $48 via eBay. It tends to skip quite a bit as worn out Smith Coronas often do, but I have since learned how to type on it without it skipping more than two or three times a page. It seems the Classic 10 might be a rare machine which makes me feel a lot better about what I paid for it in my inexperienced desperation to get a real old typewriter (compared to my Roytype!)
