197x Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve Serial # 6MLC 427639 197x Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve typewriter, Serial # 6MLC 427639 Mei Travis's 197x Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve typewriter. 2021-06-30 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mei Travis: 197x Smith Corona Galaxie Twelve Serial # 6MLC 427639 Purchased Jan. 12, 2021 from Jessica Winkowski.

This is my first SCM Galaxie and so far it looks and feels pretty much like my Classic 12. Jessica did an excellent job cleaning and tuning the typewriter. Unfortunately FedEx wasn't as kind and the right knob cracked. No worries though! After a little super glue and epoxy, it's like nothing ever happened.

Out of the blue in the summer of 2020, I really wanted a typewriter again, so after some online research and browsing, two Brother machines landed on my doorstep. A pastel blue 1971 Montgomery Ward's Signature 511D and a creamy 1985 Sears ultraportable both ignited a fire I haven't felt in a long time. I quickly found Ted Munk, the Facebook groups, and the rest of the typewriter online community, where I learned how to fix them and appreciate them. By summer's end I had collected 20 typewriters to cure my 2020 pandemic blues. Now I'm obsessed about all the different styles, every aspect of the mechanics, and their important history. Typewriters are an endless source of fascination as a literary medium, for creativity, a tinker-fest for machine geeks, and still contribute to the economy. I truly enjoy learning how to bring mid-century or later typewriters back to life, even the electric ones, while completely in awe of the unique antiques that folks brilliantly restore. It warms my heart that there are others, and here we are sharing the same passions about typewriters together.
