1972 Smith Corona Coronet Automatic 12 Serial # 6ELN 291273M 1972 Smith Corona Coronet Automatic 12 typewriter, Serial # 6ELN 291273M Gerald Ambrose's 1972 Smith Corona Coronet Automatic 12 typewriter. 2018-10-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Gerald Ambrose: 1972 Smith Corona Coronet Automatic 12 Serial # 6ELN 291273M Got this as a birthday gift from a friend of my grandmothers. Works quite well.

The machine came with the original tag that would have been tied to the handle, and even an NOS ribbon and spool. The most interesting this was the original receipt taped under the hard foam packing on the right side dated; (29)? DEC 72.

I am putting this as the date of the machine but it is by no means the right year.

Also, on the right side of the machine under the dust cover, are the numbers 1 17.

A pretty interesting machine overall.

Left the collection on 10/28/2018.

I started collecting typewriters several years ago and it started with a late 1960s Smith-Corona Sterling portable that I got as a gift.
