Vintage Fifties Smith-Corona Skyriter Portable Typewriter with Original Instructions
This is a vintage Smith-Corona Skyriter portable typewriter from the early 1950's. This typewriter was advertised as the "fastest" typewriter of its time! The typewriter works well and will come with a new ribbon. I typed "Vintage Vault" with the old ribbon it came with so it is a bit light. Everything works well. The case has some exterior marks and there is a small mark on one side of the typewriter. The handle is missing stitching in areas but it is still fully functional.
Included with the typewriter is the original instruction booklet and touch typewriting chart. The typewriter (outside of case) measures 10" X 11" X 2". It weighs 10lb 13oz.
