The Typewriter Database 1924 Corona 4 Serial # G4E00090 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Ted Munk: 1924 Corona 4 Serial # G4E00090 Sighted at Mesa Typewriter Exchange. Bruce Green Corona 4 manufactured in July/Aug 1924.

This was either the 90th Corona 4 ever manufactured, or was the 90th one made in July/Aug 1924, depending on when Corona began the habit of restarting serial numbers every 2 months. S.L. Johnson suggests that started in 1926, but I suspect Corona probably made more than 90 machines in the first 6 months of the run, so they may have restarted serial numbers every 2 months all the way back in 1924.

Either way, it's a data point to consider, and I felt it was worth including for future researchers. Plus it's in magnificent condition! :D
