1964 Sears Citation
Up for sale is a pretty Sears Citation which was manufactured by Smith-Corona in 1964. The mechanisms and basic frame, excluding the body shell, are just about identical to what you would find in the Smith-Corona branded machines of the era. As such, this typewriter, despite the Sears brand, is still of high quality. This typewriter is a smooth typer, and types in a slightly smaller than standard elite typeface, which prints very crisply and clearly. This machine is in excellent shape all around, both cosmetically and mechanically. There are very few cosmetic flaws on this machine, and it's fully operational right down to the bell. Also included is the original instructions booklet.
Universal ribbons which are sold on this site fit this typewriter perfectly.
If you're looking for an attractive '60s machine that can still be used heavily and reliably, then this is an excellent option.
