197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe Serial # 6MSH 102247 197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe typewriter, Serial # 6MSH 102247 James Gifford's 197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe typewriter. 2017-01-29 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 197X Smith Corona Clipper Seventy Deluxe Serial # 6MSH 102247 This is a curious SCM that I was handed by someone who didn't want it anymore. I see that Richard Polt has one in his collection as well. It's a lovely blue colour (I apologize in advance for the poor lighting; I don't think the photos do the typewriter justice) with the sliding ribbon cover feature. It took me a while to find the serial number, which is on the bottom on a plate visible through one of the holes in the bottom of the machine. This machine needs work. Sometimes the carriage advances, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes pressing the shift lock sends the carriage flying all the way to the left. I can and will make it work. This is the only Made in Canada SCM Clipper Seventy Deluxe I've seen anywhere other than Richard's gallery. Note the European keyset--perhaps it was intended for export?

James Gifford's Typewriter Galleries [ My Collection ] [ My Sightings ]

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 2325

I am a writer and book editor as well as a collector of typewriters. It started with an Hermes 3000 desktop, which I stupidly sold last year, but now another sits on my desk for typing envelopes with a beautiful sans serif typeface. I type every day on different machines in my collection, which stands at about 60 at the moment. Favourites include my two 3000s, a 1930s Smith-Corona Silent, the Olivetti Studio 44 (red case), and a crinkle, chrome-encircled Royal Quiet Deluxe. I have also been finding very inexpensive Royal 10s of late; I currently own three, two from the 1910s and the other a later model, and another (1931) I sold to a friend at cost for his son, who appreciates vintage things. I am always on the lookout for new and interesting machines and often trade or sell to try new models. Living and working in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
