Not sure which year this was produced, 1914 or 1915, but it is a model #7 which was only produced in in those 2 years. This machine's enamel body is in excellent condition. It has very few chips in the enamel here and there, most of which are not noticeable. It is as if it were rarely used or well taken care of. It is in working condition but I have done very little to it so far other than some surface cleaning. Types great but needs a new ribbon.

I fell in love with typewriters when I was 13. I'm retired now. My first was a Corona #3 which I got free from a neighbor. Decades pass, life happened, and I lost interest. Then a few years back as a retiree I renewed my interest which is a bit of a happy obsession now. However, it's not just typewriters that captivate me; I love all types of old office equipment, too. I have a Dalton adding machine (which I've restored), several different working antique check writers, a Dictaphone, antique steno machine, business card press, postage stamp scale. I have a well equipped antique office that is spilling into all parts of my home. Most items are from the Machine Age: 1880's into the 1930's. Still, typewriters are complex and amazing pieces of machinery that I'm always drawn to.
