196x Smith Corona Profile Serial # 6Y 696078W 196x Smith Corona Profile typewriter, Serial # 6Y 696078W Sebastian Kleinschmidt's 196x Smith Corona Profile typewriter. 2021-01-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Sebastian Kleinschmidt: 196x Smith Corona Profile Serial # 6Y 696078W This is my fourth Smith-Corona typewriter, a Profile from the 60s or 70s (serial number 6Y 696078W). It is in an okay condition with the plastic top of the right margin missing and no spools (I'll have to search for proper small ones). It needed a lot of cleaning and de-rusting. Now it is in a good working condition but it feels fragile and loose. It is nice to have in my collection but it won't become one of my favourite typewriters. It is also not properly aligned, I'll have to re-align it soon.

I'm a new (started in May 2020) typewriter collector from Germany and interested in various kinds of brands and types from pre- and post-WW2, particularly focusing on Seidel & Naumann (Ideal & Erika), Triumph-Adler and Smith-Corona U(my favourite brand!), although I own some other brands and am looking at some others (Voss, Royal, Remington). I particularly like portables, my favourite pre-WW2 typewriter being the Erika 5 and my favourite post-WW2 typewriter being my Smith-Corona Silent-Super.
