1927 Corona 4 Serial # V2L 00101 1927 Corona 4 typewriter, Serial # V2L 00101 Nick Winter's 1927 Corona 4 typewriter. 2018-07-18 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Nick Winter: 1927 Corona 4 Serial # V2L 00101 Help - is this actually a Four Improved? To be honest I bought it advertised as a Junior without knowing any better and I'm now totally confused.

I've found two others - one labelled Four Improved, one labelled Junior - on the database, linked below. Interesting that they were all sold in England!

Poor little guy has an immaculate case but is in nasty mechanical shape - the screw-heads for adjusting type alignment are all broken and I'm looking for replacements of the right size. Is there an award for the worst type sample ever provided? I think we have a strong contender here...

Possibly the most amateur typewriter collector ever? Uni student located in Sydney, AUS. The amount of storage I have is a constant problem as I try to keep feeding my addiction...
