The Typewriter Database 1920 Corona 3 Serial # 321748 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1920 Corona 3 Serial # 321748 One of three picked up in antique malls in one week. Rough shape but with decals and markings. I like the association with Hemingway's wife Hadley Richardson giving him a Corona 3 in 1921. No longer own this machine. I just kept the 1921--the better of the 3 I picked up.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
