1973 Smith Corona Classic 12 Serial # 6LTV 379472 H 1973 Smith Corona Classic 12 typewriter, Serial # 6LTV 379472 H Martha Lea's 1973 Smith Corona Classic 12 typewriter. 2015-06-11 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Martha Lea: 1973 Smith Corona Classic 12 Serial # 6LTV 379472 H Large typeface of 6 characters per inch.
I love the thing. It arrived here in the UK scantily clad in a box reading the Denver Post with a bad case of jet-lag. It types ok, with a bit of encouragement, but needs an overhaul. Missing the plastic bit of the carriage release lever on the left hand-side, but in generally ok condition outwardly.
The red/pink tinge on the Q key-top looks to me like red nail-polish that was inexpertly removed.
Last typed on in 1982.
