1974 Smith Corona Coronet Super 12 Serial # 6E LX-233575G 1974 Smith Corona Coronet Super 12 typewriter, Serial # 6E LX-233575G Michael Hoehne's 1974 Smith Corona Coronet Super 12 typewriter. 2014-06-12 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1974 Smith Corona Coronet Super 12 Serial # 6E LX-233575G I doubt we want to start off down this path, but....

I am including this eBay sighting only because it gives the serial number _and_ the year of purchase and it should help with the notoriously incomplete Smith Corona Marchant dating records. The listing includes receipt of purchase, dated 4-19-74, price $170.80.

I expect we will discuss the advisability of this in the comments.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
