1920 Corona 3 Serial # 292484 1920 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 292484 tom hitt's 1920 Corona 3 typewriter. 2015-03-22 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of tom hitt: 1920 Corona 3 Serial # 292484 This was purchased at a house sale many years ago by my wife. This was way before I became addicted to typewriters, she purchased it as a curio for display on our bookshelf.

The carriage is hung up because the draw band is caught up, and it's also off the capstan. I'm confident I can clean this up, possibly even do the repairs myself. The platen is very beat, but all of the keys function well.

Retired school teacher, now busy cooking and writing. Typewriters fascinate me, I'm mostly interested in Portables from the 50's-70's.
