1985 Sears Correction Serial # C53199487 1985 Sears Correction typewriter, Serial # C53199487 Michael Hoehne's 1985 Sears Correction typewriter. 2019-01-09 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1985 Sears Correction Serial # C53199487 At first glance this looks like a Smith Corona Corsair, in that plastic lid with the two release buttons of 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.

The model name is “/with correction  although the usual sears ID number is given on the back: 268.52100. 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.

It always bothers me that the ribbon selector shows the bottom ribbon color at the top of the selector lever. You, too, right?

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.
