1923 Corona 3 #538423


Description:

This machine is still a pleasure to use: easy action for a machine of its age, responsive mechanics, and a fair amount of the more ephemeral markings still present enough to have a sense of what they looked like new. The warranty was still in the rectangular wooden case.

I started collecting typewriters in 1996 when my employer at an old newsstand in Kalamazoo, MI gave me her mother's Underwood Elliot Fisher Noiseless; I love these machines and learning how to repair and maintain them. The Noiseless was the medium for a zine I wrote through the nineties and into the oughts, and my nine-year-old daughter now types regularly.
