New Thing: Identify My Typewriter

For Christmas, Kurt got me an old manual typewriter, which is something I have wanted for a long time.

I'm not sure if this will happen or not, but I always thought there was a certain charm to writing on a manual typewriter, and I'm hoping it will inspire some writing energy.

So now I want to figure out just what variety of typewriter I have. I know it is a portable Smith-Corona Galaxie, but that's about all I know. I think it was manufactured in the late 1950's or early 1960's. A cursory Internet search has not helped me much, nor have I been able to find where the serial number is located.
