1929 Corona 4 Serial # G6P07511 1929 Corona 4 typewriter, Serial # G6P07511 Tom Beauvais's 1929 Corona 4 typewriter. 2018-05-05 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tom Beauvais: 1929 Corona 4 Serial # G6P07511 Found this nice machine at Jeffrey's Antique Mall in Findlay, Ohio. Took me a bit to decode the SN so see photos for the decoding. Ted Munk's machine (G4E00090) had the same color code prefix and a useful link to SL Johnson's site helped me complete the decoding. The crackle finish on certain parts of the frame looks odd like there was something else there and it was removed. But all the gold coloring for Corona on front and back is there. Machine seemed to type okay for the type sample but I really had to hit the keys hard (too much easy, soft computer keyboarding). Machine came with the case.

Changed my collecting priorities to portables except the Olympia SG3 with the cyrillic keyboard and my Underwood No. 5--those beasts are too heavy. Sold my earlier typewriters to a friend. I had too many. I use carbon paper for typefaces when the machines have faint ribbons. I take photos with my Canon Powershot SX50HS (50x optical zoom and macro settings). I find it difficult doing typeface specimens since I use a Corsair K70 RGB gaming keyboard plugged into my 15-in Macbook. I got it solely for the deep key travel. I have fun hunting machines in antique malls in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
