196x Smith Corona Classic Serial # 5x106817 196x Smith Corona Classic typewriter, Serial # 5x106817 Taylor Harbin's 196x Smith Corona Classic typewriter. 2020-08-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Taylor Harbin: 196x Smith Corona Classic Serial # 5x106817 Found this at a thrift store for $15. I was attracted to the green color and service sticker, but apparently these aren't easy to find. I don't know much about a particular model and it's alleged rarity, yet I'm glad to have it. Needs new feet, but otherwise functions fine.

I am a professional historian and writer. I have been collecting typewriters since 2013, and use them for all of my work (novels, short stories, poetry, non-fiction, and personal letters). I have a passion for all things antique, but hold a special place for these tools. Some of my collection is up for sale or trade, so if you see something you want, let me know!
