VINTAGE SMITH CORONA CLASSIC 12 PORTABLE MANUAL TYPEWRITER 1960s

This great vintage typewriter is from the 1960s era.  Just a close look at the keyboard will elicit some remembrace to those of us who learned to type on a manual.  However, to strike the keys with your own fingertips….wow, what a memory!

The typewriter is in excellent working condition:

  • includes the original case, which holds the typewriter safely during travel.  You may use the typewriter in its case or take it out of the case.
  • Red and black ribbon
  • At first attempt, I had a little trouble getting the paper to feed, but finally figured it out.
  • The keys for the changing of red to black may be inverted, but both colors work, see picture of typing.  The first letter was done in red.

What a piece of history to have on display in your home or office!
