1918 Corona 3 #191266


An early model that I got on eBay, I think. Clean, early model. No one else bid. Yay!

I love these little things. And they are probably among my favorite typers. Hard to explain why, but it's true.

I love the hand scratched serial number....

Typeface Specimen:


The early style. No semicolon. No right hand CAP & FIG.

The first patent date is actually my birthday. Maybe that's why I love them so much....

Hand written, ma!

Hunter: rock harris (numberseven)

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 541

I am a typewriter collector. I'm moving into a new phase; one where I am filling gaps and paying what's necessary to get what I want....

I know I take crappy photos. I just have an older iPhone and am impatient. When I get a real camera (or borrow one), I'll upload better ones.

The ironic thing is that I am a pretty good amateur photographer. My excuse is that I work in film almost exclusively....

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Corona 3 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Corona Serial Number page and the Corona 3 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
