1960s Vintage Smith Corona Cougar Deluxe in Teal
All the pictures taken by the talented Victor Vague from Vera Vague.
Revealing the typewriter I bought off Etsy! A 1960s Vintage Smith Corona Cougar Deluxe manual typewriter with original carrying case in teal hard plastic from VeraVague. Now, I’m hoping that the condition of the typewriter looks as good as the pictures because it really looks pretty over here! I’m also a major fan of Esty now! J should be worried.
Isn’t she a beauty! Thank you all for participating in our little mini vote! Both of them are really pretty! Just when I was deciding between the two, the other one is gone the next morning after I posted the previous post! Thankfully, my preference between the two leans slightly towards this beauty! It is still a happy occasion! I’m now a proud owner of a vintage typewriter.
Another thing I’m really happy about is the price I paid for. I paid US$55 for the typewriter, US$20 for the shipping to Ke Ying in New York, and when Ke Ying comes back to SG in December, she will load this pretty in her container where it will sail for another 2 months before reaching our sunny island! All thanks to her, I saved US$80 on shipping! That comes up to only US$75 (which is slightly under SGD$100). In Singapore, it is usually above $160 with condition worst off than this. But of course, this cannot be possible without Ke Ying’s help! I owe you coffee Ke Ying! Maybe we can invite you, Zim and Sam to our place for tea when you are back! Haha.
Now, I need to hunt for the ink and correction ribbon! Maybe I can rent it out next year for weddings! Haha.
