196X Smith Corona Star-Riter Deluxe Serial # 6Y344965 196X Smith Corona Star-Riter Deluxe typewriter, Serial # 6Y344965 Kenneth Kruschka's 196X Smith Corona Star-Riter Deluxe typewriter. 2017-12-26 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 196X Smith Corona Star-Riter Deluxe Serial # 6Y344965 The 1960's Smith-Corona Star-Riter Deluxe was made in England. It is just a Corsair (regular) in my opinion. Got this beauty for $5.00 plus $5.00 shipping. The carriage release must have gotten slightly bent when someone put the plastic cover on causing it to stop motion half-way when typing. A smidge of a bend correction and she was golden again. Update 12/26/17 I gave this to a co-worker as a Christmas gift.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
