Have you ever heard of a Smith-Corona Profile? It's easy enough to just change the color of the plastic that you squirt into the mold and print a different name on that paper table piece and--Presto!--a whole new typewriter.
Most of these I have seen are named Corsair, so shall we just use that as the generic name? Why are so many of them missing the ribbon cover?
On the bright side, this one has the often-missing carriage return lever spring in place, so the typewriter can actually be used. And the case looks nice.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Smith Corona Profile on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Smith Corona Serial Number page and the Smith Corona Profile By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
