1936 Corona Standard

Serial #1C70018

A fun old time effect I like to apply to my machines. Works best on the oldest ones, but I think it looks great on most.

Very nice machine. This is my favourite machine in my collection. It was not in wonderful cosmetic shape when I got it, however I purchased a second one that did not work and put the best shell pieces onto this machine. It now is in very nice condition, and types wonderfully. The only issue with the machine is that the K key appears to have almost melted, and is the only bad part of the machine.

My first experience with a typewriter came when I was around 6 years old, every time I visited my grandmother I would go type on her Smith Corona electronic (wedge) typewriter. Back in early 2012, my mother stumbled across the USBTypewriter project, and I was hooked instantly. I quickly bought a kit, and in June 2012 I purchased the machine to be used with it: my beautiful late model Royal 10. Later that year as I stopped at an antique store, and found another machine: this time a Remington Rand Model 7. I thought I would buy just one more. Then later, one more. And then one more. Pretty soon I amassed around 30 machines, and that number is still growing today! I hope to get them all uploaded here soon so that I actually have a count on my typewriters, because I lost count long ago.
