1924 Corona 3 Serial # 602621 1924 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 602621 Laura Hietala's 1924 Corona 3 typewriter. 2020-10-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Laura Hietala: 1924 Corona 3 Serial # 602621 I purchased this one from a friend after her mother passed away. She could not recall if her mother had used it, or if it had belonged to her grandmother. I cleaned it up a bit, and it came out beautiful. It just needs a new draw-cord and a ribbon.

The case is pretty rough. There's a panel missing from it, along with some hardware, and it smells strongly of cigarette smoke. I'm hoping to deodorize and refurbish it so I can keep the case with the typewriter.

Years ago, I fell in love with my great grandmother's 1919 Royal X. Cleaning it up and attempting to get it working again inspired me to collect and restore even more of these wonderful machines.
