1918 Corona 3 #149981
Corona Number 3, serial number 149981. Obtained from Shopgoodwill.com in October 2014. This is my 21st typewriter.
This machine was manufactured circa March, 1918.
When I got it, the rubber parts were in very poor shape and the machine was badly out of adjustment. I had the platen and feed roller recovered by J.J. Short in 2015 and got a new set of feet from Steve Dade in 2016. The escapement mechanism was fairly easy to adjust. Although it's a looker and has a lot of history behind it, the rumors are true about the Corona 3: it is slow, but it's also tough and will get the job done in a pinch.
Includes the owner's manual, oiler, and typewriter brush.
Hunter: Paul Musgrave (typerpaul)
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.
