197x Smith Corona Courier CT Serial # 8YA350243 197x Smith Corona Courier CT typewriter, Serial # 8YA350243 tom hitt's 197x Smith Corona Courier CT typewriter. 2017-10-15 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 197x Smith Corona Courier CT Serial # 8YA350243 I like the fact that companies decided to dazzle us with pretty colors, even while they were producing lighter machines that were not as robust. For all the naysaying I sometimes hear, this machine should type very well into the 21st century, provided that it's well cared for.
INTERESTING: Note that there is a Tab key, but no Tab Set or Tab Release features. This is the first machine I have run across that has fixed Tab settings. Each Tab is set at the 'tens', which correspond to the markings on the paper bail. Ingenious! Also note the "Correction" setting. Folks, any typewriter that can accommodate a black/red ribbon can accommodate a black/correction ribbon. Note that I went with all black - don't use those correction ribbons, unless you simply adore cleaning your machine after every single use. The white flakes and gums up the works. ~TH~
