An Orson Welles 'Smith-Corona 2200' Electric Typewriter, Circa 1970s. Classic design, slate blue, dark slate blue keys and carriage, still in excellent working condition with just a couple of keys that stick (remember that?), ribbon needs replacing; used by Welles on a daily basis as he always had stories, scripts, ideas, thoughts, and brainstorms that needed to be typed up; included with a black plastic cover though probably from a different typewriter; further included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions.
Approximately: 14" x 13" x 6"

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
