1970s Coronet Electric 12, Yellow
Smith Corona. Original color.
dimensions: 17″ x 12″ x 6″ (use the “large” size for a typewriter cover)
serial number: 6ELJ-233731W

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon, original case. We kept the original yellow finish and you’ll see some normal scratching on the lower front portion of the typewriter but overall still looks quite nice. The keystroke is fabulous but the space bar can be a bit testy and definitely is happiest when typing at a slower pace. If you are a slow typer, this machine will serve you well! ☺️ Suitable for everyday use but I don’t recommend “heavy” use because the tab is nonfunctioning and the steady pace is preferable for the space bar.

**To clarify, the space bar WORKS, it’s just that if you are typing fast, this one is not as responsive as others so you may find yourself missing spaces because you’re not hitting the bar hard enough when typing at a faster speed. I’ve lowered the price to reflect these two issues, which are actually minor and not as bad as it sounds. This is still a good typewriter! Also, we are not offering a warranty on this machine.

We highly recommend adding a non-slip typewriter pad to protect your table surface and to keep the typewriter from scooting across the table!😁
The sale is final.

Serviced, cleaned, tested, new ribbon installed, demo & tutorial videos. Be sure to watch the demo video so you can see how it performs! This uses a Universal Typewriter ribbon, 2-colors. A new black/red ribbon is installed for you. An extra ribbon can be added to your order and future replacement ribbons may be purchased on Etsy or on our website.
