1927 Corona 4 #R 5L10938


I traded an Edison Mimeograph (No. 76) for this typewriter, as I'd been looking for one in this color for a while and had yet to come across a good condition one. While not in perfect condition (see the wear on the ribbon cover and the missing platen knob on the left side), I love it and the way it types.

The serial number, R5L10938, dates the machine to September/October of 1927, and makes it the 10,938th one produced in that time frame. The R in the serial number identifies it as a Light Maroon DUCO Finish.

Typeface Specimen:


Note the missing knob on this side of the machine
