Ah. One of my favorite typewriter models. 1958 Smith Corona Electric. These portable electrics are probably the most overlooked typewriter (IMHO). ? The lightest touch is all you need on this typewriter. One of the most popular body styles but with the ease of an electric. Ideal for active writers.

Be sure to watch the demo video, but the “7/&” key is lighter than the rest. Rob tried working on this but was unable to get it to hit harder. You can see what I mean in the photos of the typeface example.

Attractive case is in great condition. The exterior is in good condition but has some mild discoloration in spots.

The Elite font is small and pretty. A 12 cpi.

Please be sure to look at the photos closely and watch the typing DEMO video and the typewriter TUTORIAL videos. Remember, we SERVICE our typewriters. We do NOT Restore or Refurbish. We get the typewriters to a working condition using original parts.

I recommend using a dust cover when not in use.
