At first glance this looks like a Smith Corona Corsair, in that plastic lid with the two release buttons on the front. But as soon as you pick it up, you realize the weight. It turns out it's all metal, and pretty nicely made, too. Clattery sound, though. Made by Brother, to judge from those shaped ridges at the outer ends of the ribbon cover.
The model name is â/with correctionâ¯ although the usual sears ID number is given on the back: 268.52100---unlike with Olympias there's no doubt about the exact model. It is specifically made for those ribbons with the flakey white material where the red used to be. No other differences, though, so you can toss the correction ribbon and use a regular black-over-red ribbon.
Somebody (guess who) discovered that the correction material types clearly directly on the platen; I discovered that it's not at all easy to remove it. The funky âAâ¯ looks like a re-solder job.

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 Sears Correction on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Sears Serial Number page and the Sears Correction By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
