The Typewriter Database 1908 Standard Folding 1 Serial # 1254 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Annalese Stradivarius: 1908 Standard Folding 1 Serial # 1254 This machine is from the first production year of the Rose Standard Folding Typewriter, the prototype to the Corona 3. The story of the inventor is a tragic one; Mr. Rose died two years before his invention went into production. This particular machine is in need of some major restoration; the aluminum body is fine but the decals are mostly gone, typebars need rust cleaned off but move freely and the platen needs new rubber, as the original rubber is hard, cracking and breaking off. Also needs a drawband. I will be restoring this machine to its former glory.

Typewriter maven, steampunk geek and a fat chick on a scooter. Have lots of very specific yet generally trivial information stored in me noggin. I tend to have a one-track mind and am OCD into near-neuroticisim over things I know, love and enjoy. An all-round jovial nerd.
