1927 Corona 4 #2L12389


Picked this up for Twenty-six bucks + shipping off Ebay. First is the mo. code 2, then the L is the year code, the remaining five digits 12389 are the serial number. The drawband is broke; however, I was able to slap out some imprints, while manually walking the carriage, for a type spec. Surprise, it's Pica font! Update 10/29/17 : Cleaned, fixed line space selector, new draw band, added an ok used ribbon, replaced front feed roller with one from a 1940's Smith Corona Clipper, ETC. She works!

Typeface Specimen:


Hunter: Kenneth Kruschka (KenKruschka)

Status: Typewriter Hunter
Points: 989

After finding a Smith-Corona Coronet 12 at a curb-side (in Winter while walking the dog) I carried it home; after it thawed out and started coming back to life I was hooked. My interest in this hobby lead to taking two parts typewriters to create one good unit. This typewriter aliment is (pretty much) in-curable!

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Corona 4 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Corona Serial Number page and the Corona 4 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
