SMITH CORONA COURIER (TPW 115)
Item Code: TPW 115
The “Corsair Series” Smith-Corona-Marchant plastic portable typewriters made at Kenrick Way, West Bromwich, in England from 1964-80 were designed by a team comprising esteemed New York industrial designers David Oscar Chase and Philip H. Stevens and Groton-raised design engineer Robert S. Metzner.
This late English-made Courier with a big plastic body and form-fitting case can also found in the C/T (correcting typewriter) version. Essentially this is the same old cheap, rickety little machine, but it has a very smooth carriage, and a new ribbon advance system. Both spools are turned notch by notch, and both reverse their directions when the end of the ribbon is reversed (in contrast to the usual system, where one spool simply spins freely).
