1939 Corona Sterling

Serial #2A 53739

This is a very nice machine, although the carriage return lever is missing it's spring, so it moves freely. This and the somewhat sticky shift key are the only real mechanical issues, although they both should be easily repairable, just requiring good cleaning and a new spring. Also, it is a very pleasing red colour.

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.
