1975 Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve
Up for sale is a Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve in near mint shape. This machine was manufactured in 1975. Cosmetically, this typewriter is just about as perfect as they come. Even the carrying case, despite having some dings on the outside, is extremely clean inside and out. Mechanically, this typewriter is just as perfect, and is fully functional right down to the bell. Just as the other late Smith-Corona models are, this typewriter is a beast and makes for an excellent typer. Equipped with a slightly wider, 12-inch carriage, this typewriter can type lengthwise on standard 8 x 11 papers with ease. Keep in mind that this typewriter writes in a slightly smaller than standard 12 pitch font (12 characters per inch instead of 10). The owners manual can be downloaded for free here: https://site.xavier.edu/polt/typewriters/SCportables1970s.pdf. This typewriter is also extremely easy to learn to use and care for, and uses universal ribbons which are sold on this website. If you're looking for a workhorse to write something such as a novel on, then this is a great option, especially if you are attracted to this machine's blue color.
