1975 Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve Serial # 6MLC 432472 H 1975 Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve typewriter, Serial # 6MLC 432472 H Alex Sandler's 1975 Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve typewriter. 2017-09-23 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Alex Sandler: 1975 Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve Serial # 6MLC 432472 H When you check free ads in Ukraine, such SCM typewriter is one of the least expected to show up. But there it was, listed for ~$5, lacking case. So, I bought it just to find out what is it like.

It appeared to be somewhat like early Lyubava. Heavy and a bit rusty Lyubava with some new functions. It types just like it and sounds identically. Sadly, all the springs on mine Galaxie aren't tight any more, so most of the typebars stuck (even after cleaning and oiling).
