197X Smith Corona Coronet Electric Serial # 6LEF225054M 197X Smith Corona Coronet Electric typewriter, Serial # 6LEF225054M Rob Bowker's 197X Smith Corona Coronet Electric typewriter. 2020-08-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Rob Bowker: 197X Smith Corona Coronet Electric Serial # 6LEF225054M This was given to me by my uncle who, I think, had used it in the office of his haulage business. It takes the Coronamatic cartridge and is fitted with a black nylon ribbon. There's a noticable hum from the idling motor and the type action is noisily percussive! The date is an estimate based on Tom Hitt's similar model which was bought (I assume from new) in 1981 and from which he inferred it was a 1980 machine. His s/n is 6LEF518359G)

I'm an opportunistic collector and user. Yep, I have a habit, but I'm in control, OK?
