196X Smith Corona Coronet Serial # 6SE 194778 196X Smith Corona Coronet typewriter, Serial # 6SE 194778 Michael Hoehne's 196X Smith Corona Coronet typewriter. 2013-12-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 196X Smith Corona Coronet Serial # 6SE 194778 electric; script typeface. This typewriter has a bright red label near the ribbon color selector lever reading, in all caps, "Use Single Color Ribbon Only". This is because the script characters have some descenders that would hit the ribbon's second color. It also has an odd plastic(?) return lever that is not the usual metal.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
