1952 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # SY60513 1952 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter, Serial # SY60513 Tami Sutcliffe's 1952 Smith Corona Skyriter typewriter. 2019-09-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tami Sutcliffe: 1952 Smith Corona Skyriter Serial # SY60513 "It'll easily fit under your seat or in the overhead. This typewriter is low, stout and sturdy. You won't miss your desktop model. There's nothing light or flimsy about a Smith-Corona. The keys strike easily, yet with authority. It's quiet and fast. The typeface has a strong, muscular quality, lending your writing authority, but without heavy handedness. If you're considering other ultra-portable typewriters, such as the Olivetti Lettera or Hermes Rocket, the sturdy Skyriter has the guts to get the job done, but without the flashy style of its European counterparts. That doesn't mean it lacks good looks. With its taut, lean lines, it exudes simplicity and a get-the-job-done mentality. If writing is your job, the Skyriter is your kind of typewriter." from ~Typewriter Revew at https://typewriterreview.com/2014/02/05/smith-corona-skyriter/
