1925 Corona 3 Serial # 608954 1925 Corona 3 typewriter, Serial # 608954 Vlastimil Novak's 1925 Corona 3 typewriter. 2023-06-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Vlastimil Novak: 1925 Corona 3 Serial # 608954 Corona No.3...
My smallest, the most impractical, and very cute typewriter. There is not much to say about it. It is a pity, that someone before me damaged almost every screw on this machine. I don't like people with chewed screwdrivers... Despite this, it is in quite good shape. What else? Bought in an antique store, disassembled, cleaned, and assembled. Original feet were missing, so this is an improvisation using old feed rollers from another writer, which is condemned to be a source of spare parts. Also, the bell and its cover are missing.
Writing in Czech is a real workout for index fingers and reason, why all 3-bank writers are rare here. And that's all folks. I have a feeling that Corona 3 is in some way a necessity for every proper typewriter collector, so I have mine too.

I am a passionate amateur mechanic from the Czech Republic, and I have always mesmerized by the complexity of typewriters since my childhood. The first one (Zeta 1501) was just a toy to me in the beginning, but by every year I got older I got also better at understanding how it is working and how to disassemble it and assemble it again. The second one was Ideal DZ33 which started my love for antique machines with all the chrome and glass keys.
My machines range from mint ones through a majority of well-used machines to piles of rust that I have repaired to be typewriters again which is a lot of fun for me.
I am quite obsessed with the beauty and technical genius of standard Continentals. I love how they were producing one model of a typewriter from 1904 to the '50s with constant changes in design and my goal is to collect every decal and every major variation of them.
