1960 Smith-Corona Skyriter

The result of a trade of a 1947 Smith-Corona and a 1967 Royal Custom II. This typewriter is much easier to use than both the Smith-Corona and the Custom II combined. It comes in a black vinyl case, with a red satin lining. It was made around 1960 by British Typewriters, Limited, a Smith-Corona subsidiary. Compared to earlier Skyriters, it is much more fun to use, and easier to operate. This is truly one of the best compact typewriters ever. (I even prefer it to the Hermes Baby, whose keyboard is way too small for my hands; the Skyriter is the perfect size!) Instructions for this model can be found at
