197x Smith Corona Corona Seventy Serial # 6ESH-103653 197x Smith Corona Corona Seventy typewriter, Serial # 6ESH-103653 Kenneth Kruschka's 197x Smith Corona Corona Seventy typewriter. 2017-11-14 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Kenneth Kruschka: 197x Smith Corona Corona Seventy Serial # 6ESH-103653 This was given to me by a Wild Wings Sportsmans Club member. IT NEEDED EVERTHING! One of the clutch allen screws was out, the belt was broke, a right side cord clip was not attached, didn't shift, missing both plates that mount behind where cover closes, the sticker was trash, fixed the line space assembly, replaced platen knobs, nicotine stained everything, the carriage handle was shot, missing back cover spring . . .on and on. This project only came to life with parts from a donor Coronet Electric 12.

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!
