19XX Smith Corona Electra XT Serial # 3LRU387197 19XX Smith Corona Electra XT typewriter, Serial # 3LRU387197 Mark Petersen's 19XX Smith Corona Electra XT typewriter. 2014-01-31 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Mark Petersen: 19XX Smith Corona Electra XT Serial # 3LRU387197 Found for $10 at a Goodwill in perfect condition. I liked the tiny platen knobs and the light weight compared to other electric typewriters. Once I cleaned it and typed on it I decided I also like the numbers a lot. It returns the carriage with much force, and even with a sheet of shelf liner under the typewriter the machine moves a lot. Made in Singapore.
