1922 Corona 3 Serial # 480361 1922 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 480361 John Munroe's 1922 Corona 3 typewriter. 2019-02-28 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1922 Corona 3 Serial # 480361 "Scott." A princely gift from Scott Kernaghan, this beautiful typer is now the oldest in my collection at 98 years old, and is also my 100th entry to the Database. It functions perfectly except for the ribbon advance, which I am working on. What a fine piece of machinery! Once it's cleaned up it will work as beautifully as it looks. A keeper!

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
