1972 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP-110587 1972 Smith Corona Super G typewriter, Serial # 7YP-110587 John Munroe's 1972 Smith Corona Super G typewriter. 2017-09-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1972 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP-110587 "Stella"

Fun little ditty of a typer. Serial numbering uses different numbers for the last five digits, so the 7YP1 was probably a production run or type, and the macine is number 10587 of that run. Pica, hard platen, half-size Skyriter type spools, held tight by flared spindles. Good for throwing in the car and writing dispatches to call in between heats. :-)

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
