The Typewriter Database 1940 Corona Comet Serial # 1W 9433 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Richard Polt: 1940 Corona Comet Serial # 1W 9433 This machine is labeled simply "Corona" and "L. C. Smith & Corona Typewriters" (on the back). It's a simple machine without paper support, bicolor ribbon, tabulator, or touch selector -- but it still has some advantages over Royals and Remingtons of the day (such as basket shift).
