197x Smith Corona Electra 120 Serial # 6ELL 274480 H 197x Smith Corona Electra 120 typewriter, Serial # 6ELL 274480 H Mitchell Dayton's 197x Smith Corona Electra 120 typewriter. 2023-10-24 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mitchell Dayton: 197x Smith Corona Electra 120 Serial # 6ELL 274480 H My first electric powered machine, and was purchased for nearly nothing. I’ve done nothing to it besides install a ribbon, and it types well as-is. Testament to Smith-Corona’s build quality for sure. These electrics are a really fun typing experience, but this one is quite loud mostly due to the hardened platen. Year of manufacture is a complete guess right now. 10cpi Pica -EDIT- Another machine I passed on to TB Writers Plus in Dayton, OH to find a new home. 10-22-23
