197X Smith Corona Classic 12 Valpar Serial # 6MLE 100176H 197X Smith Corona Classic 12 Valpar typewriter, Serial # 6MLE 100176H Mark Petersen's 197X Smith Corona Classic 12 Valpar typewriter. 2020-05-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 197X Smith Corona Classic 12 Valpar Serial # 6MLE 100176H I was lucky to be the second bidder on this one on eBay and won it for about $66. NO LONGER are these a mystery, they were part of a vocational assessment kit from Valpar Corp. Along with other puzzles they were for testing aptitude, task completion, and problem solving skills.
The margins are fixed, there is no tab or bell. There is a functional backspace and ribbon selector though. Some of the typeslugs have shifted characters but there is no shift.
