196X Smith Corona Galaxie Deluxe Serial # 6T2V-146176 196X Smith Corona Galaxie Deluxe typewriter, Serial # 6T2V-146176 Chris Aldrich's 196X Smith Corona Galaxie Deluxe typewriter. 2024-03-07 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Chris Aldrich: 196X Smith Corona Galaxie Deluxe Serial # 6T2V-146176 Purchased at auction on 2024-03-02 and received on 2024-03-07 at 10:00 AM. The seller stated this was a 1969, but the Typewriter database doesn't seem to have serial number dating for this range of typewriters which were manufactured between 1966 and 1972.

It's in fairly reasonable shape with some scratches and imperfections. I'll clean it up and post some photos shortly.
