199x Smith Corona Display 800 Serial # 2060030 199x Smith Corona Display 800 typewriter, Serial # 2060030 Michael Hoehne's 199x Smith Corona Display 800 typewriter. 2020-06-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 199x Smith Corona Display 800 Serial # 2060030 A pretty nice electronic typewriter. Fairly responsive, rather quiet, light, supplies available (Smith-Corona Type H ribbons and wheels). Very nice quality type with this Regency 10 printwheel, and not terrible latency. Has a dictionary-based spell checker and character, word, and line erase as well as character and word transposition features. Another owner complains of the typing line not being visible, but I don't see that problem if the light is over my shoulder.

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.
