1920 Corona 3

Serial #321748

A comparison of this 1920 machine with the later 1922 machine with the right side shift keys added.

One of three picked up in antique malls in one week. Rough shape but with decals and markings. I like the association with Hemingway's wife Hadley Richardson giving him a Corona 3 in 1921. No longer own this machine. I just kept the 1921--the better of the 3 I picked up.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
