Corona Number 3, serial number 149981. Obtained from Shopgoodwill.com in October 2014. This is my 21st typewriter.
This machine was manufactured circa March, 1918.
When I got it, the rubber parts were in very poor shape and the machine was badly out of adjustment. I had the platen and feed roller recovered by J.J. Short in 2015 and got a new set of feet from Steve Dade in 2016. The escapement mechanism was fairly easy to adjust. Although it's a looker and has a lot of history behind it, the rumors are true about the Corona 3: it is slow, but it's also tough and will get the job done in a pinch.
Includes the owner's manual, oiler, and typewriter brush.
