1970 Smith Corona Electra 220 Serial # 6ELE 247916 1970 Smith Corona Electra 220 typewriter, Serial # 6ELE 247916 Geoff Flash's 1970 Smith Corona Electra 220 typewriter. 2021-09-17 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Geoff Flash: 1970 Smith Corona Electra 220 Serial # 6ELE 247916 #71

This still has a few keys that don't strike. A five dollar typewriter that seems to be worth every penny. I do love the sound this typewriter makes when it does print.

A professor in college gave me the gift and appreciation of the letter form.
Typewriters are just little "print shops" for me.
I have an MFA in 3D Digital Sculpture.
I no longer mold young minds, by teaching art to high school students, everyday is a safari now...
In my spare time I own and operate an equal opportunity rescue shelter for all makes and models of typewriters that have been abandoned in the bottoms of closets.
