WOW! This is a Vintage lightweight compact portable typewriter by Smith-Corona that was designed for people on the road, or as an entry-level portable for students. This machine is a manual vintage typewriter with Green keys and paper bar. It also has the SKYRITER nameplate on the back with the word SKYRITER in light green. Behind that is the 2 metal wings that come up to hold your paper straight, but I didn't take a picture of that. The Skyriter was developed based on its predecessor Corona Zephyr of the 1930s-1940s. This one is in very good condition and even still has it's typewriter ribbon in place. THe keys move freely and the finger keys a very pretty green with the light green letters on top. The only color wear as you can see is on the tab bar where the typist used their thumb.
These are a neat old machine and hard to come by. You won't want to miss out on this special portable typewriter-- and for an aspiring novelist it could still be just the inspiration you need.
