Typeface tuning?

Ok, so nothing in my collection will look as good at the SG-1.  Of course all my other keepers have been Smith-Corona so perhaps I am missing out on something.  I continue to use and evaluate my Skyriter which is still a fun machine to type on.  But with my reconditioned ribbon, I am seeing some classic "portable typewriter" ink on paper quality issues.  Any good reads on the matter?  I have no intention of "munging" up my toy but I could always experiment on with my Super-Sterling.
