1928 Corona 4 Serial # L5M01505 1928 Corona 4 typewriter, Serial # L5M01505 Natalie Tan's 1928 Corona 4 typewriter. 2014-03-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Natalie Tan: 1928 Corona 4 Serial # L5M01505 Lyla is missing her case and ribbon spools AND ribbon covers, but she is still lovely as. The lavender paint is in good condition, and gold panels bright.
Made in the same year as my Mountain Ash Scarlet piece (January 1928) but sports different key design. Made in September 1928.

This AZERTY italian beauty came to me from Germany.

Update 16/3/14 - got around to fixing up the carriage string and got a type sample! Still has quite a fair bit of rust in the carriage area and that odd stoppage in the middle of the carriage, but that's for another day.
